Deputy chairman of the Security Council of Russia and former president Dmitry Medvedev, a close ally of Russian President Vladimir Putin, made some odd predictions about what might happen in 2023.

Medvedev made a post on Telegram and Twitter to share his ten “futuristic hypotheses” of what might happen in the next year, including that Twitter CEO Elon Musk would become president, which Musk called “epic.”


“Many practice futuristic hypotheses, competing in the proposal of the most unexpected and even absurd,” Medvedev wrote. “We will also do our part.”

Included in his projections were claims that the U.K. would return to the European Union and that the E.U. would subsequently collapse. He also said Northern Ireland would leave the U.K. and join the Republic of Ireland.

He predicted that a civil war would break out in the United States. He said an American civil war would lead to the “separation of California and Texas into independent states” and the creation of a “union state of Texas and Mexico.”

The Russian official claimed that the price of oil will skyrocket, which many have noted aligns with Russia’s desire to increase energy prices in the West. Medvedev claimed the world’s major stock markets will migrate to Asia and hypothesized that the Bretton Woods trading system would collapse and that the world would turn to “digital fiat currencies.”

“Poland and Hungary will occupy western regions of the formerly existing Ukraine,” he wrote as one prediction. “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.”

Adding to his claim about a future German empire, he said France will go to war with the “Fourth Reich,” leading to a divided Europe and a repartitioned Poland.

He closed out the list with a holiday message: “Season greetings to you all, Anglo-Saxon friends, and their happily oinking piglets!”
