We observed the field of GRB 191220A (Evans et al., GCN 26515; Laha et 
al., GCN 26516) with AS-32 (0.7m) telescope of Abastumani Observatory 
starting on Dec. 20 (UT) 14:40:39.  We do no detect any source within 
enhanced Swift-XRT position (Osborne et al., GCN 26522). In particular 
we do not detect the candidate in the OT (Moskvitin, GCN 26519). 
Preliminary photometry of the field is following.
