Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
OK so it's a technically-justifiable error on your part. It is possible to construe Frank's phrase thus; however, most of us would have understood that he's talking about Ireland's role in the EU (this possibility seems to have escaped you, but it seems grammatically plausible).

As for "Ukraine's civil war"... let me try to understand...
In what respect are Putin's armed forces Ukrainian? Are you arguing that they are proxies or allies of the People's Puppet Republics of the Donbass?

Or are you defining a "civil war" as any war that takes place within the boundaries of a single country? As an example, when Poland was invaded from east and west in 1940, is that a "civil war" according to your definition?
