Former Russian President Dmitry Medvedev made his own rundown of modern speculations of what could occur in the new year, including an Elon Musk administration. The Russian official who currently serves as the deputy chairman of Russia’s Security Council posted his list of 10 predictions on his Telegram channel on Monday, writing that everyone likes to make predictions ahead of the new year.
His rundown incorporates estimates at oil barrel costs, the nullification of the European Association, and a nationwide conflict in the US. Medvedev used several futuristic hypotheses, competing to propose the most unexpected and even absurd, according to an English translation.
According to List, an American Civil War would result in the separation of California and Texas into independent states and the creation of the Federated States of Texas and Mexico. Musk, the founder of Tesla and CEO of Twitter, would later win something later during the presidential election. Medvedev added the states ceded to the Republicans after the civil war.
If Medvedev’s predictions come true, other western countries will also see some major social and political changes. The Russian official forecast is that Great Britain will return to the EU before the collapse of the bloc. He also writes about the creation of a Fourth Reich or new German Empire made up of countries around Germany that would eventually go to war with France.
Medvedev ended his predictions with speculation about “the transfer of all major stock markets and financial activity from the Americas and Europe to Asia” and that the euro and dollar would be dismissed as world save monetary forms, prompting ” Gold will fall”.
Medvedev additionally posted his expectations on Twitter, to which Musk answered with an “amazing string”. Medvedev’s expectation comes as his own nation enters the new year with weighty misfortunes in the conflict with Ukraine. On Christmas Day alone, around 550 Russian warriors kicked the bucket in the battling, as per Ukrainian authorities, bringing the loss of life since Russia’s attack of Ukraine in February to something like 102,600.
In the midst of Russia’s aggression, President Joe Biden is adamant on providing aid to Ukraine, in such a situation, Russian officials have also issued warnings to America many times. Just before the Christmas weekend, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov warned that Ukraine’s President, Volodymyr Zelensky, was in Washington, D.C. Will increase the “severity” of the conflict in travel.
However, political science experts previously told Newsweek that Peskov’s warnings lacked merit, adding that politicians such as Medvedev have used similar non-credible rhetoric since the start of the Russia–Ukraine war.
Maria Popova, associate professor of political science at McGill University, said that during the 10 months of the war, Medvedev has presented himself as an extremist, even as a voice for those who speak out. He regularly utters external threats, and the goal is to harass and intimidate the West into ceasing support for Ukraine.
