WARSAW - A few days after Russian troops stormed into Ukraine in February, Eryk Klossowski issued an unusual request to senior staff at the Polish utilities company he headed.

"Russia can still take more military steps and can trigger asymmetrical threats, like terrorist assaults," said Klossowski, 46, who now is planning weapons training for hundreds of rank-and-file employees in after-work sessions this fall. "Everybody needs to be prepared."
