MASTER-OAFA robotic telescope (Global MASTER-Net:, Lipunov et al., 2010, Advances in Astronomy, vol. 2010, 30L) located in Argentina (OAFA observatory of San Juan National University) was pointed to the  GRB210227.19 42 sec after notice time and 52 sec after trigger time at 2021-02-27 04:34:46 UT. On our 4-th (30s exposure)  set , obtained 157 sec after tigger time at 2021-02-27 04:36:30 UT, we  found 1 optical transient within Integral error-box (ra=84.7625 dec=17.8122 r=0.05) brighter than  14.5.
