Nothing to confirm this besides multiple people expressing the same thoughts on the subject though so take it for what it's worth.
I heard from my one FB russian friend that Yakupov is actually '91. born, while Grigorenko is '92. I asked about Malkin, he said wouldn't be suprised if he has "fake" birthlist as well.
