Thank you, "bridge mdb show" helps me to find an external router.

Therefore bridge forwarded all locally generated multicasts to external port.
Then forwarded messages was lost or was filtered or 
just incorrectly processed, but in any case they never returned back.

So as far as I understand bridge itself works correctly, 
it isn't responsible for external troubles.

Thank you,
