on behalf of GRB IKI FuN:

We observed  the field of GRB 210725A (Bernardini et al. GCN 30501; 
Torii  et al. GCN 30507; Poolakkil et al. GCN 30519)  with AS-32 
telescope of Abastumani observatory (AbAO) in R-filter starting on July, 
25 (UT) 19:11:58. We do not detect any object in the enhanced XRT 
position (Perri et al. GCN 30517). The non detection is consistent with 
optical observations (Zheng  et al. GCN 30503; Niwano et al., GCN 30509; 
Siegel  et al. GCN 30527).

Preliminary photometry of the field  is following
