Former Russian President says Northern Ireland will leave the UK and join a United Ireland in 2023

The former Russian president has predicted that Northern Ireland will leave the UK and join a united Ireland next year.

The prediction came from the social media account of Dmitry Medvedev, who served as interim president from 2008 to 2012, when Vladimir Putin had to switch to prime minister due to term limits.

Medvedev, who is currently the deputy head of Russia’s Security Council, made a number of bold predictions as part of a Twitter thread ahead of the new year.

In addition to saying that the UK would rejoin the European Union, Medvedev said: “Northern Ireland will separate from the UK and join the Republic of Ireland,” reports Independent.

Putin’s ally has been frequently critical of the Western world since Russia’s invasion of Ukraine in February, and earlier this year accused the United States and its allies of trying to engineer a break with Russia .

Starting his predictions on Twitter, Medvedev said, “On the New Year’s Eve, everybody’s into making predictions. Many come up with futuristic hypotheses, as if competing to single out the wildest, and even the most absurd ones,” reports Independent.

In September, Medvedev suggested that the United States of America and other Western countries were trying to dismantle Russia and warned that such attempts could lead to the end of the world.

He warned that an attempt to push Russia towards collapse would amount to a “chess game with death”.

He said that some in the West would like to “take advantage of the military conflict in Ukraine to push our country to a new twist of disintegration, do everything to paralyse Russia’s state institutions and deprive the country of efficient controls, as happened in 1991”, reports Independent.

Mr Medvedev concluded by saying that Russia’s nuclear arsenals are “the best guarantee of safeguarding the Great Russia”, reports Independent.
