University, KIAM), R. Ya. Inasaridze (AbAO), V.R. Ayvazian (AbAO),�� G. 
V.�� Kapanadze (AbAO),�� E. Mazaeva�� (IKI), A. Volnova (IKI), I. Molotov 
(KIAM), Sh. Ehgamberdiev (UBAI) report on behalf of IKI-GRB-FuN:

We observed Fermi�� GRB 200613A (Fermi GBM team, GCN 27926; Bissaldi et 
al., GCN 27930; Ohno et al., GCN 27931) with Kitab-ISON RC-36�� telescope 
starting on 2020-06-13 (UT) 17:58:33 in Clear filter and AS-32 telescope 
of Abastumani observatory in R. Within localization area of XRT 
afterglow (Kennea et al., GCN27936) we�� detected the only one object in 
(J2000) 10:12:10.02 +45:45:13.7
The object is also visible in SDSS *(SDSS12 J101210.07+454512.8*) as a 
galaxy**with a photometric redshift of z= 0.4745.

(We believe that Kann et al. (GCN 27935) observed and reported the same 

We suggest the SDSS galaxy *J101210.07+454512.8* is a host galaxy of GRB 
Preliminary photometry of the source is following
