When you say "you get results which differ a lot from what is locally
called a "lake".", do you mean what is called a lake in Russia,
or what is called a lake in the country you are searching in?
Because, if you search for "lake" in Australia, you will find a lot of
references to salt lakes, possibly dry, that may only actually have water
in them *very* rarely,
or in some cases, never in human memory! But they are still called lakes,
the same as the "normal" inland bodies of water.
