Thanks Günther.

It did not mean to suggest that Grinko was not a valid Russian surname.  However, if the person in question (John does not say) were of German ethnic heritage, then perhaps Gruenke (sometimes spelled Grynke in Polish records) would be rendered as Гриньке on a Russian passport.  When transliterated back into English, it could come out as Hrynke.
