Misha hails from Irkutsk, Russia. Irkutsk (Russian: Иркутск, IPA: [ɪrˈkutsk]; Buryat and Mongolian: Эрхүү, Erhüü) is the administrative center of Irkutsk Oblast, Russia, and one of the largest cities in Siberia. He was born on the 23rd of October, 1990 and was raised by his father after his mother failed to survive childbirth. Misha was a troubled kid, a cliche shithead that would bully and terrorise everyone and everything throughout his upbringing. At the ripe age of eighteen, Zubarev decided to join the military.
