Anatoliy Shalyapin was born in the Far East of Russia in the Primorskiy Territory. His mother was a rural physician, therapist and medical assistant in an intensive care unit before her retirement. His father worked all his life as a driver. Anatoliy grew up hearing stories from the Bible because his family — parents and older brothers — had learned about the Bible and studied it with Jehovah’s Witnesses before he was born. At age 12 he took a conscious decision to live his life as a believer, deeply respecting the Bible’s commandments.

In his childhood Anatoliy was fond of football, for a time he played on his city’s team. Upon graduation he received mid-level legal education. Besides sports, his hobbies are computer technology, English and guitar.
