(IKI) report on behalf of larger GRB follow-up collaboration:

We observed the Swift GRB 160225A (Siegel  et al., GCN 19075) with 
Zeiss-1000 (West) 1-m telescope of Tien Shan Astronomical Observatory. 
We obtained several images in R filter starting on  Feb. 25 (UT) 
14:46:05. In the first images we do not detect any optical source within 
enhanced Swift-XRT position (Goad et al., GCN 19077). Preliminary 
photometry of one of  single 90 s image is following
