It is actually a three year old picture and is completely unrelated to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine in 2022. According to the Washington Post, it was taken back in 2014 when the woman in the photograph, Juliana Kuznetsova and her fiance attended a concert in Poland in 2019. Even at that time, tensions had been brewing up between the countries after Russia’s invasion of Ukraine in 2014. The picture was shared on 29 November, 2019 and went viral over social media even then.
