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

We observed the field of 150212A (Page et al., GCN 17449) with ORI-40 
telescope of Khureltogot observatory on Feb., 12 starting on (UT) 
11:32:28. We obtained 24 unfiltered images of 15 s exposure. We did not 
detect any optical counterpart in XRT error circle (Evans et al. GCN 
17452). Details of the photometry are following:

The star mentioned by Cenko et al. (GCNs 17451, 17454) is visible in our 
combined image and have a brightness of 15.85 +/- 0.25.

The photometry is based on R magnitudes of nearby USNO-B1.0 stars
