    Both Polish and Russian are Slavic languages, and there's a certain number of words that share the same (Slavic) roots. What about the names of various non-European animals - they sound similar in many languages, because they are loaned from Greek, Latin or some other languages. For example, chimpansee is NOT an English word, it's of Western African origin, and then it spread all over the globe. There are more words like that: орангутанг, жираф, гиппопотам, крокодил, зебра, пиранья, опоссум, etc.)

    Just a small remark. Accents in Russian are placed over vowels.

    I think you may have a problem with your fonts. The accent is over the vowel. I'll change the font in my post to see if it displays correctly for you.
