report  on behalf of GRB IKI FuN:

We observed the field of GRB 210112A (Ambrosi  et al., GCN 29289; Ursi 
et al., GCN #9293) with AZT-33IK telescope of Sayan observatory (Mondy) 
starting on 2021-01-12 (UT) 20:41:40. The optical afterglow (Ambrosi  et 
al., GCN 29289; Kann  et al., GCNs 29296, 29300) is not detected in 
stacked  image in R-filter. The non detection of the afterlow is 
consistent with other non-detections in R-filter (Novichonok  et al., 
GCN 29292; Gupta et al., GCN 29301).

Preliminary photometry of the optical transient in a combined image is
