Alternative place names for "Kunar, Poland, Russia" in census #poland #general

My paternal great-grandmother, Rachael Weinstein (née Jacob) was reported to have been born in "Kunar, Poland, Russia" in the 1891 UK census. I've checked in JG Townfinder but it doesn't appear to exists. It was probably a mis-spelling or mis-hearing of somewhere else (Townfinder doesn't allow wild cards). Has anyone any ideas of what it might be? I've searched online but the only Kunar seems to be in Afghanistan. There is a Kunara in Sverdlovsk Oblast, Russia but that is a VERY long way from Poland! Any thoughts? Thanks.
