Somebody replied to this question by saying "they are the same". I think
this is a bit unfair because a person asking that question deserves a full
answer.
In Russian there is no "h" sound or letter. the closest to it is "g"
Remeber that COHEN in Yiddish comes out like KAYEN in pronunciation. Now if
you cannot say that with a H but with a G then it becomes Kagan.
Simple when you know how hey?
