lazydog, you're right. I've made a test: I've downloaded this file again from the internet with home dir for downloads. And it's got permissions with that this message doesn't appear (screenshot).
I've understood: all my library was on another partition with NTFS. And, when I moved a file from it to home, system marked it as executable. Of course, I have to made chmod -x for my library folder because of it. Thanks everyone for the advices.
P.S. Though I've got the reason of it, but I don't know the behaviour of the system: it could consider FB2 as unknown type like APK for Android (screenshot), but it recognizes FB2 file as executable, as you know. And I can't understand logic of this.

Glad to get this sorted for you. I've seen this before and it comes down to 99% of the time that when the file is downloaded the execution flag gets set. If the execution flag wouldn't be set it would not try to execute the file.
