I got the first two blanks correct but the 3rd one I do not understand. Can you help explain to me what common cause they are referring to?
Also, what is the source of this question?

“Churchill conceded” say that all is not well between Russia, and France and Great Britain, again the word “ally” say things between them are not bad either. So “nominally” and “indifferent” will fit the first two blanks well. “Would compel” in second half of the sentence gives us the clue that things between Russia, and France and Great Britain is going to improve. Hence “Common cause” fits the third blank well.

Hence the answers are “nominally” and “indifferent” and “common cause”
