Zhornichenko (KIAM) report  on behalf of GRB IKI FuN:

We observed the field of ZTF21aayokph (AT2021lfa) (Yao et al., GCN 
29938) with AZT-33IK telescope of Sayan observatory (Mondy) and  and 
Zeiss-1000 telescope of Koshka observatory (INASAN).

We clearly detect the optical transient (Yao et al., GCN 29938; Watson 
et al., GCN 29940; Butler et al., GCN 29941; Yao et al., GCN 29945; Fu 
et al., GCN 29948; Kim  et al., GCN 29950; O'Connor et al., GCN 29952) 
in Mondy observatory and marginally detect it in Koshka observatory.

Preliminary photometry of the optical transient is following
