Pozanenko (IKI) report on behalf of larger GRB follow-up collaboration:

We observed the field of GRB 150120B  (D'Elia et al., GCN 17314) with 
ORI-40 telescope of Khureltogot observatory on Jan., 20  starting on 
(UT) 10:52:51. We obtained 90 unfiltered images of 60 s exposure. 
Within  enhanced Swift-XRT error circle (Goad et al., GCN 17320)  we 
clearly detect optical  afterglow (Perley et al. GCN 17315, Guidorzi et 
al. GCN 17316) in a combined image. Photometry of the afterglow is
