In restoring the damaged statues and equipment inside the monument was spent 1.2 million euros.
The arc de Triomphe in Paris, which was damaged during the protests of “yellow jackets” last year, will restore the celebration of Victory Day on may 8.
The symbol of the capital, located in the Champs Elysees area, was heavily damaged during the protests of “yellow jackets” in December last year.
Although the arch was reopened to visitors on December 12 – less than two weeks after it was damaged by demonstrators, several damaged works of art had to be restored within months, in particular, the famous copy of the sculpture of the Marseillaise and the sculpture of Francois rude, which is an allegory of the Victory.
The French culture Minister Frank Rister said that in restoring the damaged statues and equipment inside the monument was spent 1.2 million euros.
