Was the reelection of Vladimir Putin accurately predicted by a blind mystic? There are some who say ‘yes,’ after reading what the Bulgarian psychic Baba Vanga reportedly told writer Valentin Sidorov in 1979. Not only do the followers of Baba Vanga believe she predicted Putin’s victory, but also that Russia will go on to dominate the world.
“All will thaw, as if ice, only one remains untouched – Vladimir’s glory, the glory of Russia,” is what Baba Vanga reportedly told Sidorov all those years ago, adding, “Too much it is brought in a victim. Nobody can stop Russia. All will be removed by her from the way and not only will be kept, but also becomes the lord of the world.”
There is no way to test the veracity of the statements made by Baba Vanga, but those who believe in her psychic powers have pointed to her other “predictions” as evidence that she really can foresee the future. The prediction most often used to validate her power is one she made that seemed to foreshadow the 9/11 attacks. What she had supposedly said was “Horror, horror! The American brethren will fall after being attacked by the steel birds. The wolves will be howling in a bush, and innocent blood will be gushing.” Never mind that the planes that hit the world trade center were mostly made of aluminum.
With Putin’s recent reelection and mounting tensions between Russia and the rest of the world, it would seem that Baba Vanga had made a correct prediction. After all, Britain is currently feuding with Russia over the poisoning of Russian spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter, which occurred on British soil. British Prime Minister Theresa May ordered 23 Russian diplomats to leave the country. In response to this, Russia has warned Britain not to threaten a country with nuclear capabilities.
However, the wording the blind mystic used appears to be vague, and could possibly be interpreted in many different ways. Baba Vanga made numerous predictions until her death in 1996. While some conspiracy theorists believe that she had accurately foretold historical events, there seem to be no actual written records of Baba Vanga’s predictions, meaning all of the quotes could be hearsay at best and at worst, complete fabrications. Her predictions were all captured second-hand by staff members. Some predictions are believed to have been retroactively attributed to her, with no way to prove that she made them. She had supposedly predicted that the 44th president (Barack Obama) would be the last American president. However, after that was debunked, believers claimed she had made a separate prediction that the 45th president would face a crisis that would destroy the country.
Those who believe in Baba Vanga’s predictions claimed she predicted Brexit when she supposedly said that Europe as we know it would “cease to exist” in 2016. However, she had also said in the same prediction that a third world war would be waged across the continent from 2010 to 2014, which, if you’re paying attention, definitely never happened. In addition to this prediction, believers said Vanga accurately predicted finding a new power source and launching a manned flight to Venus in 2018, as the Parker Solar Probe is set to launch in July 2018 and pass Venus on its way to the sun. However, according to a report from Forbes, an email that had been circulating for years with a list of Vanga’s predictions had previously stated she predicted this occurrence for 2028.
While her predictions may not be entirely real, Baba Vanga was a well-known figure in her native Bulgaria. Orphaned at a young age, she told people that she became blind after a tornado picked her up and threw her into a field. While she was found with her eyes covered by dirt and sand, no one saw what had actually happened to her. Sergey Medvedev, Boris Yeltsin’s press secretary, met with her and claimed she predicted Yeltsin’s electoral victory in 1995. However, there are still no actual records of these predictions. After her death from breast cancer, Baba Vanga’s house was turned into a museum and opened in 2008.
