Nice examples. I remember back then when I was learning Russian 
I always thought that this is strange and very misleading.

Now that I am in Japan and have to fight with Katakana, which is
purely pronounciation based, I have to say, it is not better at all.
Trying to guess what the locals hear and transcribed into Katakana
is one of the worst things. I can read novels, newspapers, all with
Kanjis by now, but Katakana is still a real pain in the ass.

All the best
