Are Russian bees worth it?

Are Russian bees worth it?

I'm looking for bees that will be cold-hardy to survive New England winters. Unfortunately the bees sold by my local bee association are imported from Georgia and may not be cold hardy.

Local nucs are selling for $225 but I found a place that's selling Russian nucs for $210, which seems like a better deal to me since along with being cold hardy they're also more varroa resistant.

Is this a good deal? Yes I know I'm overthinking this but even the nucs from down south are selling for $170 so are Russian nucs worth the extra $40?
