    What sort of Ukrainians are barely if at all passable in Poland?

    A lot of them look native here or native enough. But there is also a lot of them that look 'off', but that no of off is smaller/

    In mass (if not talking about the east) they stand out among the Russian population, but I wouldn't call this look "western". More alpine and dinaric shifted compared to Russians, that's it.

    Western Ukrainians look far more 'central European' than Russians do. Which makes sense since that region was essentially part of the Polish-sphere since the 1300s. Not to mention it just always being geographically more west.

    Genetic tests, from what I understand, demonstrate this.



    Ukrainians from Kharkiv, etc. basically look like Russians from the same area in my experience. And you are always going to see a continuum throughout Europe that way.
