But it seems there is no other variants.

Well then, no question. In fact it's difficult to tell the size by the photo, but once you compare with Thyrgorina jankowskii, probably it is a miniata.

I had a look. http://szmn.eco.nsc.ru/Lithosiinae/Miltochrista_rosacea.htm
Miltochrista rosacea differs from Miltochrista by smaller size(Dubatolov). I would not say that there is a small butterfly on my photo. If you compare it with others, Its size similar to Thyrgorina jankowskii.

There is another close species from Russian Far East Miltochrista rosacea, i do not know what exact deference between them, there is few photos of rosacea.

It's exactly male (the bend angle of the forewing upper edge has clear-cut).
And species is correct in my opinion, but let someone else look.
