  • Flames and smoke rise from Notre Dame Cathedral as it burns in Paris

Another French billionaire, Francois-Henri Pinault of the Kering group, earlier pledged 100 million euros ($113m).

Russian experts are ready to participate in the restoration of the landmark French Notre Dame cathedral, but they have to understand first what kind of assistance France will need, Russian Special Presidential Representative for International Cultural Cooperation and Ambassador at Large Mikhail Shvydkoy told Sputnik.

The billionaires behind many of France's top luxury brands have pledged €300 million ($339 million) to help reconstruct Paris' Notre Dame cathedral following a devastating fire. The politician declared: "We'll rebuild this cathedral all together and it's undoubtedly part of the French destiny and the project we'll have for the coming years".

The blaze consumed the roof and the eight-centuries-old cathedral's spire for more than eight hours before firefighters brought it under control, saving its bell towers and outer walls.

Arnault and his family will donate money "dedicated to the construction of this architectural work, which makes up part of the history of France". Bernard Arnault, the main shareholder of LVMH Moet Hennessy Louis Vuitton SE, ranks third globally with a $90.4 billion fortune.

'Swamp Thing' to shut down production early

Tourists who might normally have been gazing up in wonder at the cathedral's stunning ceilings and works of art joined distraught Parisians who had gathered behind police cordons to watch on the Ile de la Cité, an island in the River Seine that marks the very center of Paris. Some sang liturgical music in harmonies late into the night as they stood vigil, while others recited prayers.
