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

We observed the field of the GRB 160525B (Krimm et al., GCN  19459) with 
  ORI-40 telescope of Khureltogot observatory starting on May, 25 (UT) 
15:51:26.  We do not detect any source within enhanced Swift-XRT 
position (Beardmore et al., GCN 19463). Preliminary photometry  of  the 
combined image is following
