We observed the field of the GRB 160525B (Krimm et al., GCN  19459) with 
AZT-33IK telescope of Sayan observatory (Mondy)  starting on May, 25 
(UT) 15:54:47.  We do not detect any source within enhanced Swift-XRT 
position (Beardmore et al., GCN 19463). Preliminary photometry  of  the 
combined image is following
