He has a Georgian background through his father. Reviya is a Georgian surname. His patronymic is Noevich, and Noe is a name used in Georgia. His ex-partner, Eva Khachaturian, has an Armenian surname. Not that that stops her from having Georgian ancestry too (I don't know anything about her at all), but he definitely does.As I understand it, Reviya previously skated for Georgia with a Russian girl of Georgian background, when they broke up he found another Russian and kept skating for Georgia.
