Nevertheless, in February this year, the Inferior Ministry Committee denied to prolong living permit for the family in Germany. The reasons are withheld. According to some data, the authorities had suspicion with regard to Arthur Baveyan, who, allegedly, was repeatedly charged for law infringement earlier, Lenta.ru reports.
