The fire at the Notre Dame of Paris occurs at a suitable moment for the French Government

The fire at the Notre Dame occurs at a very suitable moment for a France, torn into pieces by protests and even more for France’s government. It is still unknown what will be uncovered by the investigation. But unfortunately, in the modern world, one can really believe in coincidences.

Disproof

Hinting on conspiracies is an instrument often used by pro-Kremlin disinformation outlets, suggesting "False Flag Operations" behind current event like the Skripal Case.

Leftist or Islamist extremism caused the fire at Notre Dame

It is too early to rule out “natural causes” for the fire at Notre Dame of Paris, but it is possible that the cathedral was set ablaze either by the Yellow Vests as an attack on Macron, or by Islamist extremists. Even if the Islamist are not responsible for the fire, the very fact that some young supporters of radical Islam has expressed joy about this event is horrible. The fire from Notre Dame will set all of Europe on fire.

Disproof

Unfounded claims, presented without any evidence. Hinting on conspiracies is an instrument often used by pro-Kremlin disinformation outlets, suggesting for example "False Flag Operations" are behind current event like the Skripal Case.
