MASTER-Kislovodsk robotic telescope  (Global MASTER-Net: http://observ.pereplet.ru, Lipunov et al., 2010, Advances in Astronomy, vol. 2010, 30L)  located in Russia (Lomonosov MSU, Kislovodsk Solar Station of Pulkovo observatory) was pointed to the Swift GRB240418.85 (trigger No 1222885,15h 57m 17.26s , +23d 36m 26.3s, R=0.05) errorbox  18 sec after notice time and 78 sec after trigger time at 2024-04-18 20:25:26 UT, with upper limit up to  17.8 mag. The observations began at zenith distance = 41 deg. The sun  altitude  is -34.9 deg. 

The galactic latitude b = 48 deg., longitude l = 39 deg.
