The grammar structure of slavic languages is very similar to sanskrit (these are complex and precise languages with huge vocabularies). There are similarities between words used to indicate numbers from 0 to 10 such as (here in Polish, another slavic language):

dvi - dva

tri - trzi

catur - chtery

panc - pienc


..and Brahma was worshipped by Slavs untill 12th century (at least) as god with four heads / faces, and was called Sveta-vid (one who sees or knows the entire world)
