Most work on phonetic distances between different languages is done by Yuri Tambovtsev. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yuri_Tambovtsev

He developed TMB index not explaining methodology. I used Pearson’s chi-square statistic. For Polish language most similar sounding languages based on 9 phonems

Polish: Czech (1.44), Slovak (1.72), Sorbian (2.41),
Belarusian (2.65), Ukrainian (3.68), Russian (3.84), Slovenian (3.95),
Old Russian (4.64),  Serbo-Croatian (5.5), Bulgarian (8.06), Macedonian
(10.23)
