Depending on how far Russia encroaches into the Ukraine, and how badly they trash the Ukrainian army, Poland might have to deal with the very real possibility of their border being within striking distance of Russian ground forces. And even if it was only a hypothetical worst case scenario, Poland still has to prepare/plan around a counter against it.
Do not forget that Poland is a part of NATO, they don't really have to fear much. I really doubt Russia will be glad to fight with EU or NATO as a whole
