Kapanadze (AbAO)  report on behalf of GRB IKI FuN:

We observed  the field of Swift short GRB 210919A (Tohuvavohu et al. GCN 
30846)  with AS-32 telescope of Abastumani observatory (AbAO) in 
R-filter starting on Sep., 19 (UT) 00:48:33. We do not detect any object 
in the enhanced XRT position (Goad et al. GCN 30850). This is consistent 
with optical observations (Tohuvavohu et al. GCN 30846; Lipunov et al., 
GCN 30847; Hu et al. GCN 30848; Strausbaugh et al. GCN 30849).

Preliminary photometry of the field  is following
