Tweeter 1:“Where are we? Does anyone have a map?”
Tweeter 2: “I have some roadmaps for our common spaces with Russia”
Tweeter 3: “Don’t be tweetards, these will not help. Doesn’t seem we are in the common space yet. Are we going to China?”
Tweeter 4: “is happy the guests are enjoying the cruise.”
Tweeter 2: “is thinking about Russia’s suggestion to pay Ukraine’s debt for the Russian gas out of EU’s taxpayers’ pockets. Hmmm”
Tweeter 3: “Is confused. We wanted Russia to ratify the Energy Charter but now they want to us to sign another Energy Charter which they prepared. Maybe if we apply for membership in Russia-Belarus Union, Russia will ask for EU membership?”
