The serious conflict between Russia and Ukraine has triggered intense fear among citizens residing in Ukraine. Russia has already launched a massive invasion of Ukraine. The Russian military destroyed 74 Ukrainian military facilities, 11 airbases, an AP report added quoting Russia’s Defense Ministry on Thursday.
Meanwhile, England’s fast bowler Jofra Archer appears to have predicted the ongoing conflict between Russia and Ukraine. In fact, the fast bowler took to his official Twitter handle and posted a tweet rooting for Russia back in 2014. His old tweet started doing the rounds on social media now.
The fast bowler has always been hilariously regarded as a “prophet” for his tweets predicting the future. There were several instances when 5-8-year-old tweets of his went viral on the internet. While the majority of his tweets were based on cricket-related incidents, the one about Russia was out of the syllabus.

Come on russia!
