6:03 pm
the or how she was over several shirts learned, i wish happiness to every one and that we finally overcome cova wear masks and get vaccinated than everything we find them ever received their gifts in the new uses as their issue, what the i have said in the new year we'll be traveling somewhere where to our case and not mandatory. and we can have a break from our masks and forget about the previous year. what i wish every one happiness health a peaceful sky above their heads and for things to turn out better for people than they can even imagine to mr. the whole nation seems to have gotten through some, some real hard times at the moment, but they really are going into the new year with their togetherness and solidarity . as i said, for those watching that on from russia, this is the biggest celebration in the russian calendar. just imagine your birthday, the birthday of everybody, you know, and christmas all rolled in. so one that's how big new year is and those that have gathered around red square in moscow in the parks and wherever they can get to,
6:04 pm
they will be going home, maybe to eat a little more than they should. they had to drink a little more than they should and perhaps to be with their those families am and be in the warmth away from this cold. as they say. russia has a met 2022 well and happy new year. 2022 is making its way around the globe. as time zones, of course, vary from country to country. the new year has been slowly coming in with an array of fireworks. here are some of the big displays, then. these are seen coming from hot dubai, where the verge, helluva famous skyscraper was lit up with breathtaking visuals and fireworks nearly 178000 kilograms of fireworks. were reportedly used for this incredibly sought after celebration. next images are from australia and the seem to make an equal competition to the one to do by dazzling display in sydney harbor. and comes after months of strict coven walk downs and restrictions down on the right over in germany. there is a bit of
6:05 pm
a challenge for people who set up new years parties there. the government has banned the sale of fireworks for a 2nd street year in a row to stop large gatherings and prevent the spread of coven. however, it has seen many germans out with authorities and hop across the border to poland to buy their festive supplies with more. here's our europe corresponding the brandenburg gates the location for the traditional job and 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 has found their private sale, as part of the last round of coven measures brought in at the start of december. it's hard to knock the reasoning behind the decision less ad hoc fireworks display
6:06 pm
between midnight and the early hours. less calls to the emergency services also less people 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 paths 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 available figures show that a band will not noticeably relieve emergency admissions, nor will infection rates be effectively reduced. it's the 2nd year in
6:07 pm
a row that covert is put paid to firework sales, 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 do with the professional displace patrol for all t berlin. are most of us get just one shot at midnight to ring in the new year. but of course, it's a very different story when you're orbiting the earth, 16 times a day, and the crew on board, the international space station always celebrate and style. here's the russian cosmonaut. new year's message for all of us. back down here on earth. louisiana. hi, dear franz from the international space station were cosmo on santano capero and better to graph sharing, review this magical feeling of the upcoming new year. both here and space and back

6:13 pm
the mission is also a large tried forward for the russian space program which made space travel possible for 2 non cosmetic, after just 4 months of training and it's more than space tourism. it's about professionals from different areas and not just career cause menard's been able to go into space and do their job beat acting or something else. so as the head of rushes space agency to be the mom would help putting up with your boss beside the scope of them. but that it was not to be to that the cutters almost done us. but others snellville which up but i am but a good plan, but i'm some you all a cup but i am putting up in but, but that he was good percentage when you need us to run them, but got the him of plan. ah, 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
6:14 pm
history as an erotic of reporting from as a stand silicon in the program on our team world news. we look back at how the rivalry between britain and france cranked up a notch after a series of spats in 2021. let's relieved that after short breakfast. oh, is your media a reflection of reality? in the world transformed what will make you feel safer? high selection, whole community. are you going the right way or are you being led to somewhere? which direction? what is true? what is great?
6:15 pm
in the world corrupted, you need to descend. ah, so join us in the depths or remain in the shallows. with 2021 rapidly coming to an end to this time for some reflection. what will we remember about this year? how did our lives change? also we look forward to the new year. what does 2022 have in store for us? will we be living in interesting cars? welcome back. this is our to international. now looking back at more of the stories that made headlines in the last year, the centuries old rivalry between britain and france made a big come back in 2021. there were disputes over refugees and fishing rights and also bickering over a controversial defense deal. our friends correspondent,
6:16 pm
charlotte davinsky, looks back 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 france on the high seas, but now the french are looking to recapture access to waters between the 2 countries. for 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 retaliatory measures. europe must apply those measures for boil official tail,
6:17 pm
so rotten that france even threatened to turn off you case 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, 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 for other 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
6:18 pm
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. it's coastline. we could fun, doubled 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 this reluctance to intervene. this refusal to get involved is a political decision president emanuel mac. ron is seeking re election next year and thinks dumping on the british will win in bots. and go, 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. she was met, france. hate 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
6:19 pm
a punch bag in the domestic politics. correlations came to a stand off as british p and johnson, and his views on twitter. now that 3 french president, my con, into a hissy fit, just shortly the method. 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 a bumpy summer for france. a to just found out that it's dean of the century with australia to build a fleet of submarines had been torpedoed in favor of a new one with the us canada. and oh yes the u. k. hotly a 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 and the of the, the side effect sort of to,
6:20 pm
to stuff to abs fuel, to the cy, between faults 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 amendment. my call is a control freak. he, he's a bureaucratic technocrat. he is, has attention to detail on 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 rad. he politics rally personal. 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 schools, taking a very one for all and all for one approach. the e u, though has remained relatively aloof, but that is
6:21 pm
a whole other capital of fish challenge. even ski ot paris. and finally, on the last day of the year, i had the opportunity to speak with the hungarian foreign minister to get the perspective on some of the main events that shaped 2021 from nato's tense relationship with russia to finding solutions to the coven pandemic. ah, for our central europeans, 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 and they do, and there i shall talk to each other and 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,
6:22 pm
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 at the beginning of next year. it is very easy 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 the supply of of natural gas. all the contracts have been respected and the schedule was respected. the volumes arrived always on
6:23 pm
time, and as far as i understand, no one in europe complains about about why elating contracts buy gas from. so what we can say is that 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 you ever hear from a politician on energy or gas supply. but our understanding is that the, the more pipelines the better it hasn't 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
6:24 pm
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, 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 the new car has not been the recon wise by the international organizations is 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 that does it from
6:25 pm
me. and whether you're starting your new day or whether you're celebrating now or getting ready to celebrate from all of us here at our international in the newsroom and in the gallery. happy with .
6:26 pm
oh, driven by dreamer shapes banks concur. some of those with dares sinks. we dare to ask ah, well, happy new year, special kaiser? it board with the one and only gerald salenti,
6:27 pm
originator of the transport jazz man, no stuff released video shows las vegas police waiting in the hallway at the mandalay bay hotel. even as steven paddock continues to murder people below the ever killed and this coward stayed on the 31st floor and not one attempt was made to reach the 32nd floor. buyers could have been saved if they were to take an action. absolutely. they had a team of armed individuals that did nothing but a coward while the shots were going on. 58 people died that night and the cow will come. who could have done something for him. but they don't tell anybody about it. i found out about it and i did the story on it. there were about 30 police officers
6:28 pm
with shotguns of yours and will come to him. the emission for now on the 32nd floor went into the room 1121 of the swatches discharges weapon in the room where they went into the room and they completely destroyed the crime scene. which is something you all do when they turned over patrick's body. they ran shocked the room that goes against any stand that police protocol anywhere in this country to handle the crime scene like a bunch of incompetent. because they call the biggest crime scene in american history at that point, the bottle never brought this out until i broke the story and was followed up by some news to me after a. she will not have won the election. in my opinion, had this information been released the way should have been released in the timeframe. it should have been released in the put it was for us to release. you have the body chair videos where you hear officers directly saying
6:29 pm
turn your cameras off. make sure your cameras are off or why do you not want what's about to happen to be on video? killing my body and one of the many crazy things in this investigation that just doesn't look. i think there's something more to this shooting than what's been disclosed. you've got to release officers that say that they are gunshots from different locations. i know is what i want you to do that we saw a move from one to 5 and coming out that window. be sure it wasn't just one test because it was 2 to speak with so many, many of flu in real life. even panic fired 1314 a way. now,
6:30 pm
why would there be instances during the volleys, where stop shooting? if you have multiple shooters, there's no reason to stop shooting. a fact that we've got the architectural features of las vegas with the different buildings nearby. lots of concrete and sidewalks and so forth that tends to lead to a lot of acoustical reflection. and so the reporting of a gun fired in an environment. we have lots of krispy corporation for like a sound like going across the venue and then bouncing off of the building. so sounds like it's coming from directions that can sound like there's many more shooters just because.
