That is the external Schengen border - the most policed border in Europe. No unrest is filtering through it.
Nothing, The Ukrainians that are fighting want closer ties with the EU, which Poland already has
kiev is a long way from poland...
Thank you to those from Poland who responded. It has prompted me to pay closer attention to what is going on in the Ukraine. As a neighboring country, Poland IS close to the Ukraine so being alert to what is going on does matter when you travel. Like some have cautioned, it shouldn't affect my trip anymore than a strike in Italy might be problematic.
Connie, the distance does not matter as what is currently going on in Ukraine is Ukraine's internal issue. No Poles are going to get up in arms about it because it is simply not our business. Yes, it is shocking to see people being shot in 21st century Europe, but no more shocking than people running amok shooting innocent school children in the 21st century US.
The protest in front of the Ukrainian Embassy in Warsaw involved some 300 people who are seriously deluded if they think they know what is really going on, who is right, who is wrong, and what is best for Ukraine.
Touche! and so true. I am not worried about traveling to Poland. Just want to be aware and educated. You are right about the shootings in the US as being just as big of a concern.
There is probably have more chance your plane will crash than a riot taking place so I wouldn't worry about it.
You have nothing to worried about
I called some friends in Minsk, Belarus and asked what effect they have seen and they said it was just a local political situation and it was "interesting".
Political conflicts in that region and have happened frequently. That area has had long history of being in the middle of politics because there are few geographic features that are barriers from N-S or E-W either way.
