Russian President Vladimir Putin expressed sympathy to French President Emmanuel Macron and the people of France in connection with the fire that gutted Notre Dame Cathedral, the Kremlin's press service reports. Its famous spire collapsed, and its iconic bell-tower has gone up in flames.
A few hours earlier, French President Emmanuel Macron pledged to rebuild Notre Dame and said he will be seeking global help to do so.

"This belongs to the world, as an art treasure", he said. An investigation has been launched into the cause of the fire which may be linked to renovation work.
Paris Mayor Anne Hidalgo said in a Twitter message that Paris firefighters were still trying to limit the fire and urged Paris citizens to respect the security perimeter that has been set around the cathedral.
With the fire that broke out Monday evening and quickly consumed the cathedral now under control, attention is turning to ensuring the structural integrity of the remaining building. Gallet said 'two-thirds of the roofing has been ravaged'.
"It took about 100 years to build the building", he said.
The fire came less than a week before Easter amid Holy Week commemorations. As the cathedral burned, Parisians gathered to pray and sing hymns outside the church of Saint Julien Les Pauvres across the river from Notre Dame while the flames lit the sky behind them. "The greatest tribute any Christian can make to Notre Dame is to follow Jesus ever more closely and to reflect his love to everyone".
