Wild New Year predictions by fmr Russian PM too crazy even for Twitter: ‘Lay off the vodka’

The end of the year is always a time for predictions of what’s to come and considering how tumultuous 2022 has been, it could be time to buckle up for 2023 which, according to a former top Russian official is set to be a doozy when it comes to world-altering geopolitical developments.

Civil war in the United States, skyrocketing oil prices, the collapse of the European Union, the relocation of stock markets to Asia and the presidency of billionaire Twitter owner Elon Musk in quite possibly the wildest year-end list ever put together, courtesy of former Russian  Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev.

“On the New Year’s Eve, everybody’s into making predictions,” Medvedev who held office from 2012 until 2020, wrote in the introduction to a lengthy Twitter thread, “Many come up with futuristic hypotheses, as if competing to single out the wildest, and even the most absurd ones. Here’s our humble contribution. What can happen in 2023.”

“1. Oil price will rise to $150 a barrel, and gas price will top $5.000 per 1.000 cubic meters, 2. The UK will rejoin the EU, 3. The EU will collapse after the UK’s return; Euro will drop out of use as the former EU currency,” he began.

“4. Poland and Hungary will occupy western regions of the formerly existing Ukraine,” he tweeted. “5. The Fourth Reich will be created, encompassing the territory of Germany and its satellites, i.e., Poland, the Baltic states, Czechia, Slovakia, the Kiev Republic, and other outcasts.”

“6. War will break out between France and the Fourth Reich. Europe will be divided, Poland repartitioned in the process,” Medvedev continued. “7. Northern Ireland will separate from the UK and join the Republic of Ireland.”

Shifting the focus to the USA, the Russian wrote, “8. Civil war will break out in the US, California. and Texas becoming independent states as a result. Texas and Mexico will form an allied state. Elon Musk’ll win the presidential election in a number of states which, after the new Civil War’s end, will have been given to the GOP.”

“9. All the largest stock markets and financial activity will leave the US and Europe and move to Asia,” he predicted. “10. The Bretton Woods system of monetary management will collapse, leading to the IMF and World Bank crash. Euro and Dollar will stop circulating as the global reserve currencies. Digital fiat currencies will be actively used instead.”

Medvedev then capped it off with an insult, “Season greetings to you all, Anglo-Saxon friends, and their happily oinking piglets!”

The new “Chief Twit” appeared to get a kick out of Medvedev’s crazed forecast.

“Lol @RemindMe_OfThis in one year,” tweeted Musk.

In another tweet, Musk mockingly said “Those are definitely the most absurd predictions I’ve ever heard, while also showing astonishing lack of awareness of the progress of artificial intelligence and sustainable energy.”

Other Twitter users reacted to the wild laundry list of predictions with many suggesting that Comrade Medvedev may have been inspired by his country’s favorite liquid libation.
