Political scientist Sergey Markov believes that Russians will have few reasons for joy in 2023.

Markov said that in the capital of Russia on New Year’s Eve, many Muscovites refrained from launching pyrotechnics.

“Fireworks are reminiscent of rocket and artillery strikes. And therefore, they are morally unacceptable,” the political scientist expressed his opinion.

The political expert is pessimistic, as he believes that one should prepare for the bad.

“There is nothing to celebrate. The year was very bad and the new 2023 is reasonable to expect that it will also be very bad,” Markov explained.

Formerly Commander of the Vostok Battalion Alexander Khodakovsky predicted quick “thunderstorm” on SVO.
