Well, maybe, after the Baltics.

This is simply how it’s done. Soviet… err, Russian agents infiltrate a community, and agitate that they are being oppressed by the host country. That leads to Putin raising the issue in various international forums, supposedly lending legitimacy to the claims. Eventually, it becomes an excuse for “peacekeepers” and “monitors” to occupy a region.
Russian peacekeepers, of course. Permanently. Then hold “free and fair” elections to secede and join Russia.
At a minimum, Russia can use this to sow instability in the region, something that works for Russia, and against Poland and her allies.
