Russia-Ukraine crisis was predicted by The Simpsons in 1998. Here’s Proof


What ‘The Simpsons’ think today, the world thinks tomorrow. The show seems to have predicted the current Ukraine-Russia crisis way back in 1998.

It was predicted in one episode that the Soviet Union would return and the Cold War would reignite.

A clip from the popular series shows the West trying to find a solution to prevent an ‘all-out war’ on social media. According to a clip from the episode, ‘Simpsons Tide’ aired in March 1998, at the time of Boris Yeltsin’s presidency of the Russian Federation.

The episode shows Homer Simpsons joining the Navy and how he gets into a shooting match with a Russian submarine.

The clip that is going viral on social media shows Russian ambassador to the UN revealing the collapse of the Soviet Union and was just the deceive the US. The hilarious clip brings Lenin to life who breaks out of his glass coffin saying ‘must crush capitalism’.

Twitter shared the clip widely and pointed out that the current situation in Ukraine was first called by ‘The Simpsons’.

In recent weeks, the US has accused President Vladimir Putin of amassing more than 150,000 troops near Ukraine’s borders in preparation for what many fear to be a proper invasion.

US President Joe Biden imposed fresh sanctions on Russia while declaring that invasion of Ukraine had begun as Russian lawmakers gave Putin approval to deploy “peacekeepers” in two Ukrainian regions.

Russia has repeatedly denied plans for such an attack but says it has a duty to protect people living in the two breakaway regions.

Putin on Monday had declared that Russia will recognise Donetsk and Lugansk situated in eastern Ukraine as separate republics while declaring that the Minsk peace agreements on Ukraine’s conflict no longer existed.

‘The Simpsons’ have predicted the future before. From Astroworld stampede to Kamala Harris’ swearing into the US office as the Vice President to the US Capitol riots- the predictions made on the show have come true in the recent past.
