Tr0mBoNe: It'll really start getting interesting if Ukraine joins NATO.

I'll be surprised if they'll get accepted into it. If NATO expedites their membership, it'd look incredibly aggressive in regards to Russia. Otherwise, the Ukraine would be waiting for a few years or so as the motion to join NATO shuffles through the bureaucracy. During which time it could be extremely unstable (if it isn't considered unstable now), and NATO would wash their hands of it and say, "Come back when you get your shiat together."

Poland on the other hand, if they get involved in protecting the Ukraine -- that's where it'll start to get interesting.
