5:05 pm
a bait. with all those families as well. well, if we're celebrating that have lost their loved ones and it's also time damage. so as we can take and watch those pictures, 2022 continues to make its way around the globe and time zones. of course, very if we come to the country, the new year has been slowly coming in with an array of fireworks. let me show you some of them want to go to that. well, these gorgeous seams coming in from hot dubai. with the verge khalifa, the famous skyscraper, there was lit up with them. some fabulous fireworks looks amazing. doesn't it? now? we'll just sydney harbour bridge. they're always guaranteed of fabulous display. and no let down at all there. and equal competitions the ones into by let's look at a bit more of what we've got a i think we've gone past as you know where we got no idea at all really up and this is sort of the firewood. i ok. well over germany, there's a bit of
5:06 pm
a challenge for people waiting to see the new year there. the government has banned the sale of fireworks for a 2nd year in a row to stop large gatherings to prevent the spread of covert but it so many germans boxing clever. they've hoped across the board of the poland, by the festive supplies to go off with a bang is more with a europe correspondent, the brandenburg gates the location for the traditional german new year's celebration. it's also home to an annual fireworks extravaganza. the it's about the only place you'll see them lighting up the night. sky is the country rings in 2022 as the german government to fund their private sale. as part of the last round of covert measures brought in at the start of december. it's hard to knock the reasoning behind the decision less ad hoc fireworks display between midnight and the early hours. less calls to the emergency services also less people
5:07 pm
mixing and gathering books above on the sale of fireworks. doesn't mean no fireworks. people have been popping over the poland to stucco for fireworks are part of new year's eve. it's a tradition to set them off and it would be a shame if it didn't happen. while german pay may be rejoicing at the prospect of less frightening fireworks shops, selling them in poland and making hay. while this particular sun shines at the moment because of the band in germany, we have about 300 customers a day. and we are pretty overloaded. they buy a lot, it varies, but on average it's about 200 years per person. the band on selling small fireworks is purely a symbolic policy. the vailable figures show that a band will not noticeably relieve emergency admissions, nor will infection rates be effectively reduced. it's the 2nd year in a row that covert is put paid to firework sales,
5:08 pm
here in germany. and i should imagine it's left firework retailers. fizzing. one of the plus side to less fireworks is less clean up needed. in the aftermath, the german capital is usually smothered in a blanket of discarded munitions following the festivities. this year, revellers that don't get their hands on. some polish pyrotechnics we'll have to make due with the professional displace, peter all of our all t, berlin. well, most of us get one shot at midnight to ring in the new year. but of course, it's a very different story when you're opening. we are 16 times a day in the true a bold, international space station i was celebrate. install there for is the russian cosmonaut. knew your message for us all back down on f. lose. yeah. hi. dear franz from the international space station were cosmo on santano capero and petra broth sharing review this magical feeling of the upcoming new year. both here in space and back at home on earth militia live on the norm where wishing you a new year,

5:14 pm
a large stride forward for the russian space program which made space travel possible for 2 non cosmos, after just 4 months of training and it's more than space tourism, it's about professionals from different areas and not just career cosmic not being able to go into space and do their job be acting or something else. as the head of russia space agency to be more open to more specific, but that it was not to be to the cutterson that was done us. but not a bit so no much. but i got the some of you all a cup, but i am but i got them but that it was good percentage and you have left on them. but i, there is a lot of food for thought in the months to come about that. but for now, everyone here including us, is just extremely excited to witness something that will definitely go down in history. the new rush got reporting from guys are stand,
5:15 pm
magic moment from 2021. still to come. what we're talking about. let me see is world news one i am with me, kevin, but we look back and saying that was not magic. the rivalry between britain and france really cracked up a notion of for a series of spots last year. we're going to re live after the break news the oh, is your media a reflection of reality? in the world transformed what will make you feel safer? high selection community. are you going the right way or are you being led to somewhere? direct? what is true?
5:16 pm
what is great in the world corrupted. you need to descend a join us in the depths or remain in the shallows. oh, driven by drink shaped bankers and those with theirs sinks. we dare to ask whoa, happy new year. special kaiser report with the one and only gerald salenti,
5:17 pm
originator of the transport gas man, you know, stuff ah, i guy looking back at more of the stories that made headlines in the last year. in fact, it was one of the toughest political conflicts of the last 12 months. the centuries old rivalry between britain and france, but a big come back in 2021. it would dispute sofa refugees and fishing rights, also bickering over a controversial defense deal of france. correspondence, shallow depend, sky reports, france and the u. k. have been like 2 squabbling neighbors for a millennia. at times those disputes have descended into full blown wars. but for over a century, there has been this relative, calm, not is until now. in the past, the u. k. is had plenty of success against sprawls on the high seas,
5:18 pm
but now the french are looking to recapture access to waters between the 2 countries. that fishing rights only going to print it. we still, since the beginning of this year, don't have the licenses did. we're not fighting with the english. we're engaging in dialogue to try to make our position understood so that we can get access to these waters. i think we may have to go further find other approaches that may not have been previously addressed. the agreement signed today provides for italia, 3 measured europe must apply those measures for boil official tales, so rotten that france even threatened to turn off the u. k. 's electricity supplies, but was this about more than simply making waves over fishing licenses? i suspect also that there are many reasons why right now are having a spot between the british and the french is very convenient for both for a minute, for the prime minister of great britain and for the french president. of course,
5:19 pm
it is about more than fishing licenses. 98 percent of fishing licenses that were applied for were already granted. the french thing is about 40 votes. it's is just something to sort of keep it alive. her quarrels between france and britain are all serious, but that one is, is completing the manufactured. even though the u. k. has now granted more licenses . french fishermen are still unhappy and continue to threaten british imports. now that brings us to another bone of contention migrants the u. s. wholly still struggling to find a way to deal with mass, illegal migration. but the brakes think francis found a solution. turning a blind eye to those who try and cross the english channel. france is failing to police its coastline. we could fund double the number of french police, but they are not serious about intercepting migrant groups in broad daylight. it would further anger taxpayers here by throwing more good money after bad. i believe
5:20 pm
this reluctance to intervene. this refusal to get involved is a political decision president emanuel micron is seeking re election next year and thinks dumping on the british will win in bots. ando was really stoked following the deaths of almost 30 people in the english channel in november. now they had been trying to reach the u. k. shores, but france hit back telling the u. k to stop it's latches. britain is in no position to be giving lessons to us. britain should stop using us is a punch bag in the domestic politics. relations came to a standoff as british p. n. johnson, and his views on twitter. now that 3 french president mike on into a hissy fit shockley to me today. i'm surprised when things are not done seriously . we don't communicate between leaders via tweets or publish letter. so we're not whistleblowers, come on some, but you know, all of this came on the back of
5:21 pm
a bumpy summer for france. a to just found out that it's dean of the century with australia to build a fleet of sub marines had been torpedoed in favor of a new one with the u. s. canada. and oh yes, the u. k. hotley recipe for success. but what the issues between the u. k. in france really boil down to might have more to do with the opinion the to leaders half of each other. i think it was really a political thing on the of the, the side effect sort of to, to stuff to abs fuel to the fight between france and great britain that was just an added plus each of them a min mccolan boys, johnson sees, and the other what they hate most bars, johnson is shambolic disorganized. he goes on the fly, he has a sense of humor and amendment. my call is a control freak. he, he's a bureaucratic technocrat. he is, has attention to detail and,
5:22 pm
and both of them they work in different ways and they despise the where the other functions they don't like one another. i mean it's, it's is rarely politics rally, carson, all but in this instance, each of them has got a sort of vision of how they want international relations to go and it's not the others. and then it becomes personal francais, even try to get the e, you invested in only ongoing squabbles taking a very one for all and all for one approach. the e u, though has remained relatively aloof, but that is a whole other cattle of fish. charlie's even ski, asi paris. and finally, for now, in the last there they had just gone. we spoke with the hungarian foreign minister to get the you perspective on some of the main events. that shaped 2021. from nato's tense relationship with russia to finding solutions to the kobe pandemic. ah, for our central europeans,
5:23 pm
it's extremely important that east and west that the united states and the russian federation have a direct and continuous dialogue. we are very happy with the fact that the 2 presidents spoke again for nato and there i shall talk to each other, then there's a much bigger and better hope for any kind of common understanding and agreement about this part of the world. look, we really do consider the, the security situation of central europe as a crucial issue for us and anything that helps to resolve challenges here and ease tensions around the region service our interest. so that's why we are really interested in successful negotiations between nato and the russia, the beginning of next year. it is very easy
5:24 pm
for politicians to finger point on one specific country on one specific person on one specific decision. in order to push responsibility away, the russian federation on the gas from have always been very reliable partners from hungary when it comes to supply of of natural gas. all the contracts have been respected and the schedule was respected. the volumes arrived always on time, and as far as i understand, no one in europe complains about about why elating contract by gas from so what we can say is that the gas from the russian federation, respect the contracts which were assigned between european countries. european companies and russia and gas from maybe this is not the most sophisticated sentence
5:25 pm
you ever hear from a politician on energy or gas supply. but our understanding is that the, the more pipelines the better it has been an our agenda as well to, to see how we can further increase the number of those who get the vaccination. because we do consider that as the only solution for the crisis we in hungary have a very clear experience. more than 6000000 hungarians have been vaccinated. we have been using 6 different types of vaccines, including including sino farm and for western types of vaccines. pfizer rosters and come with the youngs and so we have a very colorful experience. i do believe that the fact that has not been recognized by the international organizations is
5:26 pm
a purely political issue. you know, when i, when i talked to western european colleagues of mine, they always tell me that, well, they all know that the, the russian scientific community is out standing. they all know that the russian medical solutions are successful. they all know that the russian vaccines are safe and effective, and none of the vaccines are worse than any other good day, right. and so starting a brand new year here. that's all tease world news. a 1 am for moscow with me, kevin. now in this early new year's day morning, thanks for checking in for me and all the team work in tonight. we wish you a great 2022. ah

5:28 pm
are encouraging you to do it and not just stop or it felt like my life was over. jump office about the balcony and dyed t u. he just couldn't stop a ah hello and welcome to world to part a russian outage has it that one can take the girl out of the village, but never the village out of the girl. the story gets even more complicated when
5:29 pm
the girl grows into the states woman and the village into one of the world's most entitled countries. what it's like to acquire russian citizenship after the live of public service to the united states for america, ought to discuss that. i am now joined by suzanne massey, former adviser to president ronald reagan on russian affairs. matter, massive great to sir. it's a big on our big privilege for me to talk to you. thank you very much for inviting me. we are recording this conversation on the eve of our new year, and i'm sure it's gonna bring some novelty into your life. because as far as i know you're about to receive a russian passport. yes, but i have only one reason. i re book. i am a writer. i've written 7 boats. 5 of them are about russia. one of the things i was wanting to do, and it's the only reason this is happening is because i wanted to be able to write my next book, which i'm working on right now here. and not have to wait and in
