We observed the field of GRB 200412B (Fermi GBM team, GCN 27547; Mailyan
et al., GCN 27558; see also Burgess et al., GCN 27548; Longo et al., GCN
27557; Page et al., GCN 27561; Gupta et al., GCN 27563; Zheng et al., 
GCN 27565)  with  AZT-33IK 1.5-m telescope of Sayan observatory (Mondy) 
and Zeiss-2000 of Mt.Terskol observatory.  We  detected  the afterglow 
of GRB 200412B  (Lipunov et al., GCNs 27555, 27556; see also e.g. Kumar 
et al., GCN 27564; Belkin et al., GCN 27566, Stecklum et al., GCN 27567,
