Boris Kipriyanovich first came to the world’s attention in an extraordinary story published by the Russian newspaper Pravda. And what a debut it was. In October 2005, when he was just nine, the publication sensationally revealed his Martian past. That’s right; this little Russian boy claimed that he had previously led a life on Mars. Crucially, though, he had a dire warning for us Earthlings about an impending apocalypse.
When he was born, Boris, Russian name Boriska, was a little different to the other babies, according to mom Nadezhda Kipriyanovich. For she told Pravda, “When they showed the baby to me, the boy was looking at me with a grown-up look. As a pediatrician I know that newborns cannot concentrate looks on anything. However, my little baby was staring at me with his big brown eyes.”
