A. Pozanenko (IKI), E. Mazaeva (IKI),  E. Klunko (ISTP), A. Volnova 
(IKI), S. Belkin (IKI)  report   on behalf of IKI-GRB-FuN:

We observed the field of  GRB 190311A  (Troja et al.  GCN 23946) with 
AZT-33IK telescope of Sayan observatory (Mondy) starting on Mar. 11 (UT) 
  14:39:17.   We  clearly  detected  the candidate in optical afterglow 
(Troja et al.  GCN 23946). Coordinates of the optical transient are 
(J2000) 14:08:15.74 +53:30:03.1 with uncertainty of 0.5 arcsec in both 
coordinates, which correspond to the coordinates obtained in GCN 23946. 
  Preliminary photometry of the afterglow in R-filter is following.

0.01875 27.0 19.83 0.06
0.02014 29.0 19.83 0.06

Photometry is based on the SDSS-DR12 stars (Lupton transformations)
SDSS-DR12_id	        R
J140819.68+532900.1	17.09
J140818.11+532934.7	15.19
J140809.64+533055.9	16.97
J140807.35+533116.9	16.11

The optical transient is fading and we can confirm the optical afterglow 
of  GRB 190311A.
