Vangelia Gushterova, known as Baba Vanga, lost her vision when she was 12 years old and claimed God gave her the gift of clairvoyance.
She died in 1996 after making predictions up until 5079, which are revealed each year.
Also known as the ‘Nostradamus of the Balkans’, she said 2021 will see the world ‘suffer from a lot of cataclysms and great disasters’.
‘The consciousness of people will change,’ she added.
‘Difficult times will come. People will be divided by their faith. We are witnessing devastating events that will change the fate and destiny of humanity.’
She said Donald Trump would suffer from a ‘mysterious disease that will leave him deaf, and cause brain trauma’, someone in Russia will try to assassinate Vladimir Putin and Islamic extremists will use an ‘arsenal of chemical weapons against Europeans’.
She claimed a ‘strong dragon will seize humanity. The three giants will unite. Some people will have red money. I see the numbers 100, 5, and many zeros’.
Some interpreters think the dragon is a nod to China’s rising power in the world.
Not everything was full of doom, as the woman claimed humans would find the cure to cancer next year and the production of petrol would stop because trains ‘would fly using sunlight’.

Baba Vanga is said to have predicted Brexit when she said ‘Europe would cease to exist by 2016’ and the UK voted to leave the EU in the same year.
But it is hardly the ‘empty spaces and wasteland, nearly devoid of any form of life’ the fortune teller promised.
Believers also think she saw the 9/11 attacks before they happened in 2001 when she said: ‘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.’

But she also thought Barack Obama would be the ‘last American president’ which was not true.
Many have doubted whether the predictions which come out every year were legitimately from her, as they were never written down.
Before the world ends in 5079, apparently humans will make contact with aliens within the next 200 years, there will be an end to world hunger in 2028, Mars colonies will be acquiring nuclear weapons by 2256 and Earth will become uninhabitable by 2341.
