Russian vs. Russian Hybrid

So last year I started beekeeping with an established ''Russian'' hive. I say ''Russian" because that's what they were advertised as. They were darker in color and the queen was almost black so they were probably at least Russian hybrids. Anyways I wanted to do Russians again this year and when I went to order the bees I saw Russian and Russian Hybrid for sale. I know Russians are a bit more resistant to mites and all, but does anyone know what the difference in the two is? Would I be better off with the Hybrids or the Pure Russians. They are the same price. I don't care if they are aggressive, the main thing for me is mite control and the ability to build strong colonies fast. Any advice?
