We observed the field of the GRB 181002A (Gropp et al., GCN 23290) 
with AZT-33IK telescope of Sayan observatory (Mondy).  We obtained 
several images in R-filter starting on Oct. 02 (UT) 16:31:56.  We do not 
detect any object within enhanced Swift-XRT position  (Beardmore et al., 
GCN 23292). Preliminary photometry of the field is following.
