A child genius in Russia has claimed he is from the planet Mars and was 'reborn' on Earth.
, Boris Kipriyanovich, of Volgograd, Russia was a child genius, who attributed his intelligence to his previous life on Mars.
At the time he first made headlines, he went by the name 'Boriska', meaning little Boris.

reports that Boriska claims that Martians breathe carbon dioxide (which makes up 95 per cent of the planet's atmosphere), and that the survivors of the nuclear war built 'protection lodges' and new weapons.
His whereabouts since the 2007 video are unconfirmed.
Since then he has become a poster boy the pseudo scientific community, and their belief in 'Indigo children', who are alleged to possess supernatural gifts.
His 'story' crops up in multiple blogs on the topic, and increasingly on
