A. Pozanenko (IKI), E. Klunko (ISTP), A.Volnova (IKI), M. Eselevich 
(ISTP), report on behalf of larger GRB follow-up collaboration:

We observed  the field of XRT afterglow candidate (Mangano  et al., GCN 
15875) of the GRB 140219A (Hurley et al., GCN 15864, Zhang GCN 15866, 
Guiriec et al.,GCN 15867, Golenetskii et al. GCN 15870) with AZT-33IK 
telescope of Mondy observatory starting on Feb. 22 (UT) 14:45. We 
obtained 60 images in R-filter. In the initial images within XRT error 
circle  (Mangano  et al., GCN 15875) we detected two objects which are 
present in SDSS DR9. One of them is a galaxy (SDSS 3015-301-3-0280-0458) 
and other one is a star (SDSS 3015-301-3-0280-0457). No new objects were 
detected. Upper limit of the initial image of 60-s exposure is R=20.8.
