We observed the field of GRB 200227A (Fermi GBM Team et al., GCN 27233; 
Laha et al., GCN 27234) with AZT-33IK telescope of Sayan observatory 
(Mondy) starting on Feb. 27 (UT) 12:47:07.  Within enhanced Swift-XRT 
position of afterglow (Beardmore et al., GCN 27243) we did not detect 
  afterglow in agreement with previously reported non-detection (Oeda et 
al., GCN 27236;  Oates et al., GCN 27244). Preliminary photometry of the 
field is following.
