The blind mystic who died Baba Venga mainly predicted terrible disasters for our near future, so the phrase "Baba Venga was right" should not come out of our mouths. The latest news coming to us from Ukraine has done just that. The explosion of the Nova-Kakhovka dam on Tuesday in southern Ukraine led to the evacuation of thousands of residents from their homes, while the city of Kherson, which Ukrainians recaptured in November, flooded the port and local industrial zone. The nearby town of Olszki was also completely flooded. Kyiv and Moscow continue to exchange accusations over the destruction of the dam controlled by the Russian occupation forces - and at this stage it is still difficult to verify the claims of both sides. The dam explosion could lead to another humanitarian disaster and, in an extreme case, a nuclear disaster in the war-torn country.
The fear that the destruction from the dam explosion would endanger the nearby Zaporizhzhia nuclear power plant has brought us back to mystic Baba Venga's devastating prophecy for this year, 2023. We published its destructive forecasts here even before the year began. She predicted that a nuclear disaster would happen on Earth before this year was over. It warned of a major nuclear power plant explosion this year, creating toxic clouds over Asia. The explosion, she said, would spread serious diseases around the world as toxic clouds filled the air. Is that where we're going? The head of Russia's state nuclear energy agency, Rosatom, warned last year that there was a risk of a nuclear accident since Russian forces took control of the Zaporizhzhia nuclear power plant.

In an attempt to reassure the public, Russian media reported that despite the flooding and destruction caused by the dam explosion in southern Ukraine, there was no "substantial risk" to the nearby Zaporizhzhia nuclear power plant, so it is too early to know whether Venga's forecast should be concerned.
If it meets it, we will probably have to take more seriously the rest of its forecasts for this year, some of which are not easy to digest at all. The Bulgarian mystic, nicknamed the "Nostradamus of the Balkans" for her apparent ability to see the future, died in 1996 at the age of 75 – but left behind a large number of (more and less) devastating prophecies until 5079, when the world would supposedly come to an end.
This year, she says, Earth's orbit is expected to change – not a marginal change as we know already exists, but a dramatic one that is expected to be devastating. Moving closer to the Sun will melt glaciers and flood the Earth, while moving farther away could plunge us into an ice age.
It also predicts a "solar storm," meaning electric charges that will erupt from the sun and hit the Earth. If that's not bad enough, Venus predicts a threatening use of biological weapons. A "large country" will allegedly conduct biological weapons research on people, according to Venga, who warned that hundreds of thousands of people would die.

She also has one optimistic outlook - a breakthrough in the field of laboratory baby creation. Baba Venga believed that future parents would be able to decide on skin color and other characteristics of their children. She argues that soon we will no longer rely on genes and that we will engineer our children ourselves. Some interpreted her prediction a little differently, arguing that, like "The Handmaid's Tale," natural pregnancies would cease and babies would be raised in laboratories and distributed to people.
Baba Venga, who supposedly went blind and gained her powers after being swept away by a tornado, predicted – again seemingly – the coronavirus pandemic, the September 11 disaster, the Chernobyl disaster and the death of Princess Diana. Of course, all of these predictions were written vaguely so that they could be associated with these events—and anything else we would like in the article.
Experts who have studied her predictions say 68 percent of them are accurate, while her fans believe the number is higher at about 85 percent success. Among its mistakes was a prediction of nuclear war between 2010 and 2014 that never happened and the end of Europe in 2016, which may have been the year Britain voted to leave the EU, but Europe – both as a continent and as a union – still exists. Even if you are skeptical, she has gained a wide following over the years and is considered one of the most popular mystics among fortune-telling enthusiasts.
