You can`t understand because you look from your angle. But what is their, Armenian, world? Their world is between China and Russia, as closest big powers. Russia is even closer. Armenians look more like Russians, Europoid. Religion heritage of Russia is closer and, again, you have at work element such is `backwardness`. Just this time that element works in favor of Russia because China is seen as more backward then Russia. Plus, you have one element that is often underestimated but always present. That is element of meta-ethnicity. While Armenians now aren`t Slavs, in their meta-ethnicity, they were Slavs (ie Sarmatians).
Polish on the other hand never claim russian anywhere and they look more similar to Russians than Armanians.
Most prevailing force that control emotions of Poles on Russia is element of `backwardness`. Russians are seen as backward and Poles easily eliminate option of taking Russia seriously. Then, you have additional elements and that is `religious` and `meta-ethnicity`. Neither of these two factors, among Poles, works in favor of Russia. Actually, meta-ethnicity works only partially. Why is this so?
Religious element is under control of outside factor and that is Vatican. Its power opposed to anything Slavic and rather allied with Germanics, Anglos and even with Islam. With its network of influence Vatican always keep safe that element of `backwardness` on its side, always reminding Poles how are Russians more backward then Poles, then western Europeans. Now, Vatican is right, there. Russia is more backward but, what Vatican hide is key truth and that is- Russia isn`t key problem to Poland. Vatican itself, as outside ruler, with outside interests, is key problem to Poles. That is the force that erasing difference between Poles and western Europeans making Poles prepared to be easily subjugated and assimilated by anyone who coming from west of Europe.
Now what is with `meta-ethnicity` element? Poles are Slavs. Its true. They share it with Russians. But, problem is that in their meta-ethnicity Poles rather see themselves as Sarmatians (ie Serbians), what is same as Slavs but actually represent older original. See, Russians are Sarmats (ie Serbs) themselves but they were far from old center when cataclysm induced by Romans occurred and Russians made profit from switching to use of term `Slavs` (younger, alternative ethnic name to all Sarmats) and they invested effort to make name of `Slavjani` glorious. Polish elite, on the contrary, didn`t make business of switching to `Slavic` name. Poles were closer (even part of very center), to the old center and they suffered fate of old center most directly- in full. The glory of Sarmatian time, when Polish warlords controlled The Amber trade route, was never repeated. Since Romans disrupted Amber routes, Poles live in humiliation.
So, one and only Russian way to play on `meta-ethnicity` element among Poles is to support Serbs- last Sarmats that still using Sarmatian ethnic name as their own ethnic name. And Russians doing so. That way Russians shows how they themselves obey to the significance of old center and therefore giving up from their own selfish dictate and dominance, opening doors to talks of `Sharing the power with Poles.` And that is why behave of Russian politics suggests that Russia do support formation of Intermarium, ie Central-European Union. Sharing power with Poles is minimal price that are Russians ready to pay. They will pay it and they would see how western Europe losing its grip over the Eastern Europe and then would Central-European Union become `tampon zone` between western Europe and Russia.
