He spent six hours on the tower.
The man who climbed onto the Eiffel Tower on May 20 turned out to be a Russian citizen who had sought asylum in France. This was reported by the Europe 1 radio station and the BFMTV channel, citing sources .
Journalists did not name the man’s name. Presumably, he had suicidal tendencies. It is alleged that he spent six hours on the tower, but his motive is still unknown. The administration of the tower intends to file a complaint.
On May 20, after 3:30 pm local time, a man who was on the second floor of the tower began to climb up and reached the third platform at an altitude of 276 meters. Representatives of the administration of the tower said that he entered the room “normal.”
The man went down after negotiations with the rescuers who reached him, he was detained. According to Europe 1, he will be later interrogated.
