Poland's Army has around 60k soldiers. 1/2 to 2/3 of all soldiers in modern armies are in support roles.

So you're looking at between 20k and 30k to resist.

Königsberg has around 10k Russian combat troops in its garrison, so all they have to bring in are another maybe 50k to completely overwhelm Poland.

60k represents .06% of Russia's total land forces available to them.

Don't take this the wrong way, but Poland wouldn't last two weeks--and no one would help them.

And the Polish government understands this, so they will allow the Russians to act at will.

this what you wrote is only numbers... don't get this wrong but it's better to 60k people who can shoot and fight than 100k people who don't know what a trigger is and can't shoot... trust me

The effect of irregular resistance is vastly overrated.

For every dead Russian soldier, you'll average 10 dead Polish francs-tireurs.

Russians are actually very well trained.

your messing with an ex-super power, even though they are not what they used to be, Russia is still something to fear. no-offense, but normally in war, numbers make a huge difference unless there's a trump card, and Russia still has their fair amount of Trump cards.

I'm not saying Poland would win or lose nor the same for Russia I'm just saying normally Numbers/Tactics make the winner.

and as stated above, Russia troops are very well trained, and the training takes them into some cruel things.

Georgian war.... it will be the same scenery if Poland and Russia conflict trigger off.

Poland has no way but take this by sidings with NATO or US(WEST)to pressure Kremlin in order of concessions. This could be a fatal for Polish state to even think of saying Boo! to Russia.

And yes there was plot over this crash and even Iranian IRGC official stated some "unofficial" opinions which backed this plotting matter.
