During the broadcast, Markov expressed his views on what the symbol of the “Wood Dragon” for the new year might mean for the United States. He stated, “I think this means there will be a civil war in America. I think it’s logical…Yes, the dragon will get them, that’s good for the world.”

Among his predictions was the assertion that the U.S. would descend into civil war, resulting in Texas and California becoming independent nations and Texas forming a partnership with Mexico. Medvedev also forecasted that the civil war would ultimately end and that businessman Elon Musk would become president in the aftermath, though none of these predictions came to pass.
