MASTER-Tavrida robotic telescope  (Global MASTER-Net: http://observ.pereplet.ru, Lipunov et al., 2010, Advances in Astronomy, vol. 2010, 30L)  located in Russia (Lomonosov MSU, SAI Crimea astronomical station) was pointed to the Swift GRB220521.97 (trigger No 1107466,18h 20m 47.28s , +10d 23m 02.4s, R=0.05) errorbox  13 sec after notice time and 33 sec after trigger time at 2022-05-21 23:20:54 UT, with upper limit up to  15.9 mag. The observations began at zenith distance = 35 deg. The sun  altitude  is -21.6 deg. 

MASTER-Kislovodsk robotic telescope  located in Russia (Lomonosov MSU, Kislovodsk Solar Station of Pulkovo observatory) was pointed to the Swift GRB220521.97 errorbox  16 sec after notice time and 36 sec after trigger time at 2022-05-21 23:20:57 UT, with upper limit up to  17.4 mag. The observations began at zenith distance = 33 deg. The sun  altitude  is -19.7 deg. 

The galactic latitude b = 11 deg., longitude l = 39 deg.
