Thanks Vaalen for the good summary and suggestion. I agree, this would be historically correct and a very good event for the game. This turned the tide and was the most dramatic event. It is also a diplomatic effort for the Swedes.
Maybe there is a third option. To make it simple, just make an option to exile Charles, to start the effort of bringing the Turks into the war. Sweden will use the exile if it fails to beat the Russians and are outnumbered. Another event is to bring the King back later on.
But, I like the second suggestion by Valen best as it will motivate Sweden to attack Russia and Ukraine in a time limit.

I think that the AI builds too many Polish units, creating a large Polish army, something that never happened during this war, and this depletes the supply of conscripts. At one point, the AI had no less than twenty five single unit stacks at Danzig, which later combined to form the large army described above.
At the same time, the AI does not build enough Russian units. In the real war, a number of Russian troops were sent ot help The Saxons, who did most of the pitched battle fighting in Poland. The Poles did a lot of small scale raiding , but did not field large armies, with the exception of the Polish Crown Army , about eleven thousand men, which fought in one battle, as I recall.
If there is some way to encourage the AI to build more Russian troops and less Polish infantry, that might help the situation.
For Poland to raise large numbers of trained infantry does not reflect the reality of the situation. If it would been possible for Poland to raise such an army in this war, I would have no problem with it.
My thought is that the AI, like a player, should build the most effective units available to it, which, in this war, assuming that Denmark is not active, would be Russian troops, then Saxons.
