Germans residing in Russia in 1880s?

Classification: Immigration
Surnames: Wichert, Wickert
I have found the ship records for my GGparents, Germans who came to America in 1885 (Michael Wickert) and 1886, his wife and child. He is noted as residing in Rypin, Russland and she resided in Radczuk, Russland according to her ship records. I found a little bit about Rypin - that it was actually Poland in 1885 but did not find much else. Anyone have any insights about these locations and why Germans might have emigrated there at some point, perhaps they were industrial areas? Michael was a machinist at a rail road shop when he came to Albany NY. Thank you so much
