    What if Russia targets a NATO member state?

    I think it very unlikely, but let's assume that for whatever reason, and without any prior Polish hostile actions, Putin decides to bomb or shell a Polish road, bridge, checkpoint, farm, village, airfield or what have you, and it leads to fatalities.
