Yandex is a Search Engine, like Google or Bing. So you should probably not block their crawling bots.
Additionally, Yandex provide a webmaster interface like Google : https://webmaster.yandex.ru

Yandex is the Russian Google, just one gives information to NSA and the other to FSB :)

What is about NSA and FSB?
NSA is spying on Google, when FSB is spying on Yandex. (It's a Joke)

I never used this webmaster tool, it is used for global traffic or just targeting on analyzing Russia's traffic?
Yandex is not used only in Russia, check your analytics metrics and you will probably have some traffic from Yandex in your referrers.
I personally use their web browser (Yandex Browser) but I still use Google as search engine.
It's like Bing Webmaster, it cost nothing to register and to add your website, but you will have more traffic from Google than from all other search engines.
