S. Belkin (IKI), I. Reva (FAPHI), A. Pozanenko (IKI)  report on behalf 

We observed the field of GRB 201001A (Simpson et al., GCN 28539) with 
Zeiss-1000 1-m telescope of Tien Shan Astronomical Observatory starting 
on Oct. 01 (UT) 22:56:08.

No optical source is detected within enhanced Swift-XRT position (Evans 
et al., GCN 28540). This corresponds to the absence of the source in 
earlier optical observations (Simpson et al., GCN 28539;  Hosokawa et 
al., GCN 28548; Fu et al., GCN 28549).  Preliminary photometry of the 
field is following.
