MASTER-Tavrida robotic telescope  (Global MASTER-Net:, Lipunov et al., 2010, Advances in Astronomy, vol. 2010, 30L)  located in Russia (Lomonosov MSU, SAI Crimea astronomical station) was pointed to the IceCube Alert 230707.71 (trigger No 11333473,17h 56m 07.20s , -01d 56m 24.0s, R=0.68) errorbox  5139 sec after notice time and 5201 sec after trigger time at 2023-07-07 18:25:31 UT, with upper limit up to  16.1 mag. Observations started at twilight.  The observations began at zenith distance = 54 deg. The sun  altitude  is -8.9 deg. 

The galactic latitude b = 11 deg., longitude l = 25 deg.
