You were right.
After removal thunar package:

[12:37][MayskiyJuk][zs-71-04-a][~]sudo aptitude -F "%c %D %V %t %p %d"
p 146kB  0.4.0rc1-3 etch-backports   libthunar-vfs-1-2

thunar-media-tags-plugin             Media tags plugin for Thunar file

As I see thunar-data package still installed. 

[12:47][MayskiyJuk][zs-71-04-a][~]aptitude show thunar-data
Пакет: thunar-data
Состояние: не установлен
Версия: 0.9.0-2~bpo40+2
Приоритет: необязательный
Раздел: x11
Сопровождающий: Debian Xfce Maintainers
<pkg-xfce-devel at lists.alioth.debian.org>
Размер в распакованном виде: 10,6M
Заменяют: thunar (<= 0.8.0-3)
Описание: Provides thunar documentation, icons and translations
 This package contains architecture-independent files for thunar.
So why .desktop files in /usr/share/applications/ remove only if I
remove thunar-data package.

#sudo aptitude remove --purge thunar thunar-data libthunar-vfs-1-2
then everything is OK.
