It does not mean anything. You could have easily been the modal, or 12 mutations off, it is all just statistics. Only a collective number of mutations matter (per marker or per haplotype). Overall, the English group has a common ancestor 4,800 years ago, the Russian/Slavic 4,500 years ago. The difference could mean something or not necessarily, been within an error margin.

The amount, I think. Plus that slight difference, which I have mentioned above. The Swedish-Norwegian showed 4200-4300 years, which might have sense, or might not. I would not bet on it. However, it is a little bit logical.
