Not really, he’s only depigmented, his facial features are kind of Iranic or Caucasus-like. He looks like one of those light Iranians/Afghans, but he would probably fit best in Georgia or as Chechen, perhaps even Crete.

LOL, another one who is “depigmented”.

His facial features look generic European. His pigmentation is also lighter than average Georgian, let alone Iranians or Afghans who are partially South Asian (!). Internet is really a world upside down.
