Some unpleasant news for Na`Vi.Dota 2 fans. Akbar "SoNNeikO" Butaev applied for the US visa once again and his application was again denied. The management of the team makes everything they can to solve the problem. Well the story isn't over. In the nearest future, Akbar will apply for the US visa once again. Let's hope, he'll get one and visit The International 2015.
— "Unfortunately Akbar "SoNNeiKo" Butaev's application for the US visa was denied for the third time. As of now, the full-scale performance of Na`Vi.Dota 2 at TI5 is at question, the first games will approximately begin on 27 July. The managers don't lose their heart and will try to apply once again (for the fourth time). It's early to discuss any stand-in players. Anyway, Valve will react in case of the fourth denial. However, I suggest not losing your heart. Let's believe that SoNNeiKo will get to The International. Recall Rustam (Adekvat), who received visa only upon the fifth trial"

Consuls have the right not to announce the reason's of visa denial. We can only suggest that Akbar has no strong connections in Russia (e.g. real property), thus the consul might think that he's a potential emigrant.
SoNNeiko's application for the US visa is denied for the third time.
Managers do everything they can and are planning one more application
