(KIAM)  report on behalf of larger GRB IKI FuN collaboration:

We observed the the optical afterglow of GRB 190627A (e.g. Sonbas  al., 
GCN  24888; Siegel al., GCN  24889) with Zeiss-1000 1-m telescope of 
Koshka Observatory on June, 27 and June, 28  in  R-filter.   We clearly 
detect the  afterglow in both epoch. Preliminary photometry of the 
afterglow is following.
