@mafketis-Nothing will change
There was once the great First Rzeczpospolita from the Latin "res publica" (republic) - this is the name of the territories of the Polish Crown and the Grand Duchy of Lithuania. This huge republic included central-eastern Poland, three-quarters of Ukraine, all Belarus, Lithuania, Latvia, part of Estonia, Russia, Moldova and Slovakia.
As when Poland was divided between Prussia, Austria and Russia your people believed in the independence and prosperity of the Polish, and the Russians believe that they will live better
Times change, no one knows, maybe Poland will be a country example for the rest in development.
