MASTER-Tavrida robotic telescope (Global MASTER-Net:, Lipunov et al., 2010, Advances in Astronomy, vol. 2010, 30L) located in Russia (Lomonosov MSU, SAI Crimea astronomical station) was pointed to the  GRB211001.03 27 sec after notice time and 41 sec after trigger time at 2021-10-01 00:44:01 UT. On our 3-th (20s exposure)  set , obtained 100 sec after tigger time at 2021-10-01 00:44:59 UT, we  found 1 optical transient within Swift error-box (ra=71.4667 dec=12.0397 r=0.05) brighter than  14.6.
