"Truth be told, this scenario might be inevitable."

Now, you see why it's so important not to stop before reaching Lvov?

I don't believe it's realistic to expect Russia to break through the Line of Contact and reach Lvov before Poland possibly does.

Nothing that's happened these past seventeen months suggests that Russia is capable of doing that.

Even if the front collapses, the amount of time it would take for Russia to reach Lvov is longer than it would take Poland.

Moving southward from Belarus is theoretically possible, but Ukraine has fortified the entire frontier this whole time, so Russia still likely wouldn't reach Lvov before Poland does.

Well, I guess all we can do is keep our fingers crossed and pray, then.
