The new bright transient source has been found during deep observations of the Crux spiral Arm (PI Revnivtsev). The source was seen by IBIS/ISGRI detector aboard INTEGRAL above the background at level of ~10 standard deviations (17-60 keV) starting at 21:00 till 23:27 June 27. The source position was determined by IBIS/ISGRI: R.A.= 11h 32.1', Dec.= -53d 11m, (equinox 2000.0) with an error radius of 2.0'. The transient demonstrated very hard spectrum with fluxes ~30 mCrab and ~90 mCrab in 17-60 and 60-200 keV energy bands correspondingly, that may indicate that the source is a black hole binary. After approximately 2-3 hours of activity the source diminished its flux below ~3 mCrab in 17-60 keV energy band. We encourage follow-up observations of this source at all wavelengths.
