MASTER II  robotic telescope (MASTER-Net: http://observ.pereplet.ru) 
located in Tunka was pointed to the  GRB140512A   171 sec after trigger 
time at 2014-05-12 19:34:40.212 UT. On our first (30s exposure) set we 
haven`t found optical transient  within SWIFT error-box (ra=19 17 28 
dec=-15 06 00 r=0.050000).
The 5-sigma upper limit has been about 16.2 mag
Observations were made in twilight.
