isn't 'The solution from UK' is the same as 'The solution from Great Britain' ?

The United Kingdom includes Northern Ireland, Great Britain doesn't.

Yeah, but Germans (and many other nations) often say Great Britain meaning the United Kingdom as a country. In fact Russians say England meaning the UK, which is even worse...

Most people outside of the UK are unaware and do not really care about the difference. Thus I would argue that the UK should be accepted here, unless more context is provided.

so yes then.... if Great Britain is a subset of the UK then it is perfectly accurate to say UK

I don't quite understand what this translation means? What context would this be used in?
