I have a question, If you speak Russian, can an Ucranian or a Polish understand you?

With a Ukrainian it depends- if they are from Ukraine or if they only speak Ukrainian. Most people from Ukraine are bilingual, so they speak Russian. However, for example members of the Ukrainian diaspora abroad can't speak Russian, and it is hard for them to understand it.

With Polish it's different- it's not as similar to Russian as Ukrainian and it is even more difficult for Poles to understand Russian.

Older generations in Poland still speak some Russian, though.

These days I am watching Decalogue (http://www.imdb.com/find?s=all&q=dekalog) - a Polish movie, a very good one. I am Russian and I can't understand a thing so I read English subtitles.

I think that people from Ukrain and Poland can understand you if you're russian speaker, but not perfectly. Many words in these languages are similar to each other, but it can be quite hard to understand them in spoken language. Many Ukrainians speak Russian, so they don't have problems with understanding it.
I've never talked to Polish people for a long time, just in the shops or something like that:) I think it's quite hard to understand Russian for them.
As for me, I can't understand Ukrainian at all . When I watched Ukrainian television, I couldn't understand anything. The Polish language is even worse understood (when it's spoken orally), because there are some sounds which are different from Russian. But in written form I can understand Polish and Ukrainian a little.

My Ukrainian friend can usually make out simple sentences in Russian that I say .. but I think he speaks more Russian than Ukrainian anyway
