Does anyone have any idea of what the risk is of a blnaket ban on .ru sites?

We seem to get a large number of spam registrations from there, but I presume that we do actually do business there, so do not want to risk blocking legitimate users.  Just as an example there is the following waiting validation atm.

All of them are dodgy and the IPs track to US or Germany.

Let me know what you think.
