7:00 pm
ah, russia rings in the new year, 2020 to moscow is the scene of the country's most notable display with the capitals landmarks in red square, spectacularly illuminated by fireworks. while much of the rest of the world has already brought in 2022 with a bang, it's more of a puzzle in germany where the public are banned from buying fireworks for a 2nd street year and a very warm greeting from the international space station astronauts celebrate near 16 times as the orbit, the earth. we got a message from them with a broadcasting live direct from us studios in moscow. this is our international. i'm john thomas and happy new year. russia is now completely in 2022. it's vast territories from the far east to colin and grad in the west have welcomed in the
7:01 pm
new year. as we said, our t's danny armstrong has one. again, been one of the few in moscow's red square where traditional celebrations have been curved because of coven. ah the warmest of wishes and warmest of welcomes for me on red square to everybody watching everybody back in the studio all over the world and all over russia. and i am, of course, one of only a few on red square there thursday the senior fits are actually close. and the
7:02 pm
venue entirely to the public care, of course, because of covert regulations, but about plenty to keep me company here as a just seen the fantastic firework salute lighting up. there must go sky over red square as the main clock on the main tower of the kremlin, counted on those last seconds at 2021 and changes in to 2022. now, there wasn't a 1st place in russia, a country of 11 time zones to welcome in the new year. of course, places in the far east, like la di vosta can come chalka already seen this new year. and there were people in and around red square that did break the cold, but minus 5 in the snow, and to get a closer look at the firework display. we talked to some of them before. nothing seemed to dampen their spirits. they were full of cheer and wishes and hopes for 2022 can see what some of them said. are right now, you're cautious over several,
7:03 pm
a shirt learns, i wish happiness to every one and that we finally overcome cove, it wear masks and get vaccinated than everything we find ever received. their gifts in the new years asked the sure what the i 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. i wish everyone, 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, they will be going home, maybe to eat a little more than a should made to drink
7:04 pm
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 you 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 displacements. the teams are coming from a hot due by where the burg khalifa famous skyscraper was lit up with breathtaking visuals and fireworks nearly 178000 kilograms of fireworks were reportedly used for the display. our next images come from australia, the scenes make an equal competition to the ones into by if a dazzling display and sydney harbour and comes after months of strict coven lockdown, and restrictions down under over in germany, there is a bit of a challenge for people who set up new year parties,
7:05 pm
the government has banned the sale of fireworks for a 2nd here in a row to stop large gatherings and to prevent the spread of coven. however, it has seen many germans out with authorities and hop across the border to poland by their festive supplies. with more, here's our europe corresponded the run, the gates and 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 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 firewood displays between midnight and the early hours. less calls to the emergency services. also
7:06 pm
less people mixing in gathering with the ban on the sale of fireworks doesn't mean no fireworks. people have been popping over the poland to stock. hope you have a firewall or part of it through tradition to set them all 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 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 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
7:07 pm
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 peter all for all t berlin. 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 celebrates in style. here's the russian cosmonaut new year's message for all of us. back down here on earth. lose. yeah. hi, dear friend from the international space station where cosmo on santano capero and better to graph sharing, review this magical feeling of the upcoming new year. both here and space and back at home on earth. knowledge alive on the norm where wishing you a new year,
7:08 pm
2022 of good health strength prosperity and new achievements. stay close to one another and be merry. happy new year old. and a bit of movie magic was created in 2021. also on the international space station space is cool. a russian filament crew went into orbit to produce the 1st ever feature length film to be shot in space. the team spent 12 days on board before returning safely down to terra firma, and we were there to welcome them back. ah, if you our class before we, if i let me know that they have already on back there, national say that they already somewhere i padding back. i don't want to be a dad why door. the landing spot know me. there will be a box landing location in berry. so now we're gonna lie around. i feel we can
7:09 pm
actually see that as standing module and wait until it touches down with well, as you can see, the capitol is on the ground. the crew is still inside, but we've been told that they're feeling. all right. somebody is speaking with the crew right now. so history has been made a russian professional to the makers that just went into space, but also safely returned to earth. with footage for their 1st ever feature movie that has been taken in actual space. the whole crew are treated like heroes. with
7:10 pm
this film director clincher benco, safe and sound just came from the space. the international space station is 400 kilometers above the earth surface and a returning spacecraft usually covers the distance in 3 hours. for the most part it's freefall and the speed can reach 120 meters per 2nd. extreme acceleration, baird, with gravity taking in which the crew, her enormous physical stress. none the less she benco's seemed in high spirits. those were she, i said, those are good. we're. so we're going old olga bullock though. wish that you could you, peter glueck, who blossom again, she's working on whether the closure vadar occur. no excuse knows what she knew by the only in bullet doro, a moon garcia, room of sheer 3 or more carefully. so that was sent me to click the blue showing you brought useful. if you go to choose to initial backward you bush and you can
7:11 pm
use with ice cream. got it. of course, most why don't i shing your bullet, shaneka me just go sheriff's earlier cuz i sent him as an inquiry that was actress. hewlett brazil has just received a flower. both you let a sealed and cosmonaut aleck risky, had to act even before the laughter capsule. the landing location turned into a film, sat for one of the closing scenes of the movie about a doctor who sent into orbit to perform surgery. after that very seal. who plays the lead role laugher autograph on the capsule that not only brought her back home to date, but also sent her acting career sky work from now on. she is the 1st actress bound in space in a couple us that she, she and i saw a glow. scott say, just patterson. sure. but can you only go with another renowned russian actor of lady murmur, scott, who played a command or greeting the crew on the ground, sat the movie is a big leap forward for the world's film industry for yet. and i saw my back in my

7:13 pm
a large drive 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 is as the head of rushes space agency to pay the bill more to putting up with your boss beside the scope of them, but that it was not to be to get the cutterson lowest denise, but other this little glitch up but i am able to get to him but i'm some you all a cup but i am for to go to him but, but that he was quit son engineer, and he just on them for the 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 history as an erotic of reporting from as our stand still to come in the program
7:14 pm
here on our g 's 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 really that after short break, stay with us. ah. 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 2020 to have in store for us? will we be living in interesting kinds of things that have happened in the world would be done by people who had a great vision of how society could be better. but that great vision is typically the left hemisphere representation is not real. it doesn't take into account any of the complexity of reality. the subtlety you areas in complex people,
7:15 pm
i put them into categories as this lot is bad, we'll get rid of them. you know and change is an organic process. change is an evolution and the opposition is not between the status and everything must stay the same and everything must be radically changed. a radical change is not the way that kills me. ah, welcome back. this is our to your international. looking back at the stories that made the headlines this year, more of them, 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, charlotte davinsky, looks back france and the u. k. have been like 2 squabbling neighbors for
7:16 pm
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 i did. we're not fighting with the english and 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 tail. so rotten that france even threatened to turn off the u. k. 's electricity supplies. but was this
7:17 pm
about more than simply making waves over fishing licenses? i suspect also about 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 for the french president. of course, it is about more than fishing licenses, but 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 struggling to find a way to deal with mass,
7:18 pm
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 this reluctance to intervene. this refusal to get involved is a political decision. president emanuel mac are on 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. sure. was that 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. correlations came twice,
7:19 pm
standoff as british p and johnson. and his views on twitter now that 3 french president micron into a hissy fit. jesse shockley, 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 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
7:20 pm
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 rarely politics, rally, cost and all. but in this instance, each of them has got a sort of vision of how they want international relations to go on. 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 capital of fish challenge,
7:21 pm
even sky oxy paris. and finally, on the last day of 2021, 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 natives 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 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
7:22 pm
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 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 time, and as far as i understand, no one in europe complains about about why elating contract buy
7:23 pm
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 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
7:24 pm
been using 6 different types of vaccines, including including sino farm and for western types of vaccines. pfizer, us as an a come with edmund 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 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 versed than any other. that is it for me this hour i will be back about 35 minutes with another full and fresh look at your news from
7:25 pm

7:26 pm
public barely remembers that it happens. that just shows you the power of money in las vegas. the powerful showed that true colors when the pandemic head, the most contagious contagion that we've seen in decades. and then you have a mayor who doesn't care. so here's carolyn goodman, offering the lives of the vegas residence to be the control group. to the shiny facades conceal a deep indifference to the people vice could have been saved if they were to take an action. absolutely, keep the registering and keep the slot machines doing business as a money machine is a huge cash register that is ran by people who don't care about people's lives being lost to all those driven by dreamers shaped by frontier. some of those with
