So Russians pronounce foreign H ("hello") like G ("goo") and their own (Khabarovsk) H like H (hello)? Why is that good for?

Languages are languages. French has a thousand ways to write the same phoneme. Is that good for anything? No. But that's the way it is

For example Bordeaux.
In Serbian, it's just Bordo.
