At the opening ceremony, besides them, there were a lot of people from the political, cultural and public life of Ukraine.
The Honorary Consul of Ukraine in Montenegro Mr Predrag Milovich expressed a wish to “be awaken by these  bells”. “Let these bells wake us, so we can know that we do have a choice. And the choice is that one particle of God is in each of us. Let it also be touched and awaken by the love of Saint Basil of Ostrog through the sounds of the bells, which will take you with them as the gift of this day, and let each sound, wherever you are and whenever you hear it, take you through the time and space to this place, to this Bell tower, and to the love of Saint Basil of Ostrog, Glory and Grace to him!” – said Mr Milovich.

The Honorary Consul of Montenegro in Ukraine, Mr Stanislav Dovgiy in his speech said that the idea of opening the bell tower has supervened from the desire of strengthening tradionally good realtions between two nations. One of the fathers, father Petro emphasized the importance of bell tower for every church and said that the melodies of this bell tower provide the feeling of comfort.
