S. Belkin (IKI), A. Pozanenko (IKI),  V. Rumyantsev (CrAO),  A. Volnova 
(IKI), E. Mazaeva (IKI) report on behalf of larger GRB follow-up 
collaboration:

We observed Fermi-LAT  GRB 200524A (Dirirsa et al., GCN 27797; see also 
Pookalil et al., GCN 27809; Capalbi  et al., GCN 27811; Gupta et al., 
GCN 27818) with ZTSH 2.6m telescope of CrAO observatory starting on 
2020-05-24 (UT) 19:35:16 (Rumyantsev et al., GCN 27802). Optical 
afterglow discovered by ZTF (Ho et al., GCN 27799) and confirmed by 
several observations (Kumar et al., GCN 27800; Rumyantsev et al., GCN 
27802; Sanwal et al., GCN 27803; Perley et al., GCN 27805; Kumar et al., 
GCN 27806; de Ugarte Postigo et al., GCN 27807; Blazek et al., GCN 
27810; Ogawa et al., GCN 27813; Izzo, GCN 27817). Preliminary photometry 
of the afterglow is following
