explanation for the crisis. the rule to him, it with both of them with they are lying to us the confusing every one gets promised. shipping the entire volume requested by its counter agents. in accordance with the existing contracts, we were saying we must not destroy long term contracts, but know that the european commission, we must use market terms. the market will regulate it. well, here's how it regulates it. we have 2000 dollars, 1000 cubic meters. you're welcome, the issue of gas. it's pretty clear that you know, russia has nothing to do with that. a. he said that gas brown one is one of the few companies in the world that has increased its supplies to europe. whereas, for example, the american suppliers have diverted gas from the yeah, liquefied natural gas from the european market. toys, the markets where they can make more money. russia hasn't done that. it increased its supplies to germany, for example, by 10 percent. but that's not enough. i'm in and the russia is always,
6:06 am
whenever there is any issue, any contentious issue or even a domestic problem. it seems that in europe and the west in general, i, in the habit of sort of resurrecting russia as the scarecrow to, you know, hang all the possible problems on. and the, you know, you can be, are irritated by that. but after a certain amount of time, he's still thinking attention and i think this is the state that the control is at the moment. it's just simply boring. you know like to narrow down every problem in the world onto the rushes, plotting are evil doing well, the omicron no strain of cobra continued to spread in europe. a number of countries of setting records with france, italy in the u. k. registering new highs and terms of daily infections. let's learn more about the situation right now. crossing law to our correspondent paula sla, in berlin. paula, can you bring us up to speed? what's the latest you have? well, as you quickly say, we have a huge surge. ours cove cases,
6:07 am
new cases happening in a number of european countries. if we start off with france on saturday, fonts recorded a record high new number of cases for the 3rd consecutive day reporting, a 104611 cases. now, despite those people took to the streets and protest primarily against than a set of necessity of carrying a health pass, which is needed to enter all public spaces and also for children to be vaccinated. on monday, the french president emmanuel mc crohn, will discuss with a few members of his cabinet, new measures to counter the covert. 19 pandemic, particularly in light of the new variant army con, which we know is very contagious. it is expected that the president will announce that in order to get a health pass, people in france will now have to agree in principle, to accepting a booster 3 months after their initial vaccination. if we move across to italy, here to we have record numbers for the 2nd consecutive day on friday,
6:08 am
italy reporting 50599 new cases. italy is also reporting the 2nd highest number of deaths because of covered in europe after the united kingdom, with some 141 new depths reported now. and then if we move across to the united kingdom here on friday, we had a nother record hi, a 122186 new cases being reported. largely because of this highly contagious on the current variant. now, the local government in the u. k, is losing political points with boris johnson's popularity rating. it has taken a smo dive and hit record, learn december of some 23 percent. and that is largely because of his poor dealing with the covert. 19 pandemic and a number of scandals here in germany. the health authorities have come forward and
6:09 am
admitted that they are no longer tracing contacts of people who have cove it. in other words, there's no comprehensive follow up regarding people infected and who they coming into contact with. take it and many germans believe that they do not have to be quarantined as a contact person because they are vaccinated. but that is not true. now the society here in germany is divided on christmas day. you had thousands of people who turned out to protest against vaccinations, and that was in the german city of daffodils. but then again, on the same day, you had people waiting in long queues in potsdam waiting to receive a vaccination. 30 covered, 19 pandemic remaining as controversial and as alarming as ever do beg your pardon. thank you very much policy and joining us live here on our team
6:10 am
to national thank you. or in the meantime, though, if you are vaccinated, recovered old test negative cobit looks like you'll be needing a digital pass that allows you to get out and about for christmas. however soon you may not need to actually physically show a q r code on your phone because a sweetest company has invented a special chip, a cobra pass that goes under your skin. we talked to some people behind it. ah, are a very versatile technology that can be used for many different things. and right now it's very convenient to have a corporate passport, always accessible on your implants. so in case you or phone wrong, subtle battery, it's always accessible to the implant soon is readable by and the smartphone. that house and up see
6:11 am
function. so i can go to restaurants or a movie theater. i just show them my arm and swipe me with the smartphone on them that pops up the co passport that i have on my chip. so you don't need the special up for this kind of similar to a q r code. just out of course i don't want the cure code on my skin. right? that's good to have you with us for the weekly here. we're not t. so believe it or not, more than half of people in the u. k. are apparently too scared to say what they really think. new poll found they're worried about being canceled by friends, colleagues, or even their own family ortiz, shantia edwards dashti picks up the story. counsel culture is silencing academic se gagging public figures and wiping celebrities off the face. of the planet white can't really say that. who knows? but not the only one biting my tongue is according to you got paul. majority of
6:12 am
brits are living in fear of well being. canceled. the majority of britons 57 percent, say they have at least sometimes found themselves stopping themselves from expressing their political or social views for fear of judgment or negative responses from others. the idea or a person can be cancelled, or in other words, blocked from having a platform is happening to hundreds with a very similar cycle. you say something offensive receive a public backlash, and suddenly you're gone, done, finish, cancelled by by. but it's only happening to big names and faces, but people like you and me work online on dates and even at home. i think we're living in a coach now of bullying, bullying in workplaces, government and the best examples of that actually. so i think people are frightened to always say what they feel in case there's a come back home. and so the main, she may just seem to have one sort of point of view of everything. and so if you
6:13 am
say in different you get, so what you get quite has to think there's a lot of things, the climate change code age or whatever. there's no discussion that is the narrative and you of the group or wish cause you, dan has a lot of issues where you fear fred, very careful about what you say and not right now, a good debate. and we used to have a good healthy democracy. we have a debate and country where you could say things and then you'd have to all your case and some people just don't want to argue. i want to hear the ever argument. i just want to shut you down and say, no, you can't tell you that you don't allowed to say that i thought divide the traditional approach to the apology. atonement forgiveness is no longer enough to warrant if they weren't accountability, social justice boycott. and the more controversial the view on any topic like race, immigration breck, that the more you should keep your thought yourself and your mouth shop most with less progressive views on device of social topics. feel more reluctant to voice
6:14 am
their opinion. some say rather than being politically correct, the whole thing has been spelled out of control into a social media merciless mob rule. but i haven't felt some from taking the risk of being cancelled. like, for instance, j. k. rowling and anti trust public position. war is peace, freedom of slavery, ignorance is trans. the meanest individual horrid to is a woman. oh, that wasn't her only comment. there's been plenty more. and as a result, she's been wiped off the face of the up even by the world. she created the pot to community and the movie production team deleted her from scripts. meanwhile. * r h b yos. 20th anniversary. she was baud. not only that a number of couldn't leaks tasks they really do exist, announced their rebranding to distance themselves away from j. k. rowling, the tough. that's a trans exclusionary radical feminist. but there are others in her potty school of thought. jackie raleigh wrote all the harry potter books by herself and they
6:15 am
canceled her because she said gender was a fact. and then the trans community got mad and they started calling her turf trans, exclusionary radical feminist onto turf. gender as a fact. well, trans employ ees an alloy at netflix stage to walk out forcing the c e o to publicly apologize when you ah meanwhile, team tough relished in the drama. if this is what being cancels is like i love it. the song continues as monty python star, terry gilliam got canceled for endorsing chapels. netflix special shortly after the old vic right here in london, announcer pulling his shirt into the woods from its november schedule. it is very
6:16 am
said that a great cultural institution like the old, vague, allowed itself to be intimidated into cancelling our production of into the woods by small group of closed minded humor, averse i. d. o. x on their stuff. my unspeakable crime was recommending my facebook followers to watch netflix special by brilliant and provocative american committed . they did, and civilization didn't collapse. ok, so that's on the most extreme end of the scale. but at the end of the day, how hard is it not to say something that's obviously donning, turns out really hard indeed. cancel culture. this cancelling this punishment, it's everywhere. punishment. and i for and i, you said that therefore you must never work again. sooner or later the counselors will win. oh, british actress of prime time, tell a more and let been thinks even comedy is now on the verge of being canceled. it's
6:17 am
a bit like laughter in church. something has to be forbidden to make you really laugh. to make you belly laugh, it's when you shouldn't be laughing. and so therefore all the things that are being canceled out or i'm afraid the things that have always made people laugh. so is it time to cancel or cancel culture? because pretending somebody doesn't exist because they've touched the knob, is this temporary slope? i've, let's face it, we've all upset someone somewhere. haven't we? well today does mark 30 years since the ussr officially cease to exist. the union was replaced by 15 independent states among them. russia party is murat gas bill, now takes a look back and what's changed since the soviet flag over the kremlin was lowered. 30 years ago, humanity witness the spectacle. the dramatically changed the course of history. the spectacular overnight collapse of the ussr see lu luxury too. as
6:18 am
a result of a newly formed situation, creation of the commonwealth of independent states, i seize my activities in the post of the ussr president. so uniqueness, ah, here enough, 300000000 people woke up with a new nationality. their homeland gone race that the stroke of a pen. and it began with perestroika, a radical rethinking of soviet mentality, identity and ideology. we must begin 1st by restructuring our thinking and psychology, organizationally in the style and ways working. i will say frankly, though, we do not restructure ourselves and i'm deeply convinced of this, that we will not rebuild economy or social life. but perestroika proved too much
6:19 am
too sudden too intense to unpredictable where the intent was evolution. the result was revolution. nationalism worried up with frightful speed across the u. s. sr. a leads, and opportunities and various republic clamored for power and independence. the result was climactic. the ussr a season, his existence as a subject of international law and a geopolitical reality. it was the dawn of a new age. that was pessimism, but there was also optimism what marvels could piece bring. a great empire nicholas superpower, was split into independent countries, which got the chance to cooperate with each other as closely as they wanted, without any bloodshed. and so began all flood of cultural exchange, as western ideas rolled and roiled across the former ussr. ah
6:20 am
. ringback ringback ringback ringback ringback ringback ringback ringback ringback hundreds of millions of people have thrown off communism dictatorship or apartheid former adversaries. now cooperate with us in diplomacy and global problem solving. the ality, however, turned out to be far uglier than the propaganda post as will mainstream media promised with the guiding hand of the communist party god, old and buried hatreds, re ignited, and neighbors turned on each other. ah .
6:21 am
it wasn't just war and uncountable debts. i'd was misery, pure and simple economic social health care collapse. the rise of transnational mafias and organized crime fraud and corruption sisted across the former soviet union. ah . ringback ah, a traumatized, the people undoubtedly the misery and the hopelessness of the 90s, they yearned for stability. not for communism, no, nor the ussr, but for a semblance of order. and whatever his, the tractors might have to say about putin, he gave the russians stability. agatha. unfortunately, our common fatherland,
6:22 am
the soviet union, dissolved. as you know, the core of this common states is historical. russia, the russian federation, which is, you know, lost almost half of its industrial potential, half of its economy, the same share of its population and a substantial part of its territory. what can we do about this? now, i've already said that we're storing the soviet union would be pointless and impossible for many reasons and not even desirable because of it. which makes sense. few want the u. s. a saw communists back legends have made that very clear. but to build a new state, a new russia, one which provides for the people, rather than uses them and at the same time, evoked the sort of respect that the soviet union did. while that scares russia's opponents, hooton's plan scares them. you know, i think the concern is that president putin's public lamentations and private
6:23 am
lamentations about the demise of the soviet union have gotten on noisier and stronger over the years. so the concern is that he's actually as a legacy project seeking to reconstitute to soviet union. and then, you know, would his appetite be fulfilled with that eating or what he seek? the soviet union has been gone for 30 years, but had spirited lives on it lives on the hearts of former citizens who now remember only the glory days, the good pots. they forget the empty shelves, the food lines, the k g b, at lives on the minds of rush, has rivals who still think in terms of blocks and super bowers stuck as they are in the past. who believe that russia lost, did say forever when the usaa saw collapsed? regardless of the fact that 30 years have passed since i roddick,
6:24 am
isn't it even in death? the soviet union still shapes our futures. we spoke to him a hail threat fire, he lives in estonia, but it was never made of citizen off at the collapse of the u. s. s. r. he told us about the struggles russian speakers can face these days. it's also near she doesn't, you mother was like a lot of his sons have always held high positions and after a stone, again, its independence. all arch enterprises were brought to bankruptcy by any means over . all the russians who worked there did not speak stone in and were fired. and while they were learning hist on in there, people took all the vacant place. my mother tried and learned the language, but even she with higher education, had to work as a cleaner. they called after independence language categories appeared in estonia, language inspection body was active and rates on schools and other institutions began. those identified that were laid off their ra russian speak in civil servants,
6:25 am
but they tend not to be further up in the highest government circles. russian speakers can vote in local elections, but they cannot vote in parliamentary elections. why do you known citizens status are truly like the l m. passport is equivalent to refugees state in. i have it even though i was born and grew up here in estonia and my grandmother and mother are buried here it is not right. i'm serious. i'm certainly open, oh, russian schools will be close in tar tooth or they want to prohibit teaching in russian language if they haven't studied brush and history for a long time. like the schools are teaching the history of estonia while the occupation and all that before. i was born in the stone in soviet socialist republic, which has become estonia. but for me, nothing has changed since it was in the ussr. it has remained the same, the same people around me, the same houses, the same roads. i consider histone out to be my homeland. if my motherland will always be the country where my ancestors leapt, russia,
6:26 am
it turns out also with the top stores of the week in the main headlines of today that wrapped some this hours edition of the weekly thanks. so much for joining us for the sunday program here on oxy international and other one set to go when we return at the top of the ah, who is diagnosed with cancer in 2005. when the doctors told me the cancer was incurable. i knew i had to make a change, so i decided to travel to one of the most toxic places in america. florida. one of florida is biggest industries and best kept secrets, is fostering mine and the biggest player is $85000000000.00 industry. is mosaic, and i, there are reports of millions of gallons of contaminated water now flowing into the florida aquifer. libra, there's a chronic o genie called left here that work or something,
6:27 am
but that's what it is. i'm in 2013 my all our family dog, my brother, who is 21 years old, myself and my father were all diane rob, problem with the whole. rocca, i'm a good player, right? yeah. maybe they'll actually learn that more help is more important in for special yes. today, the old in the legendary mich virus 9 author of planet ponzi mich. nice to say, happy holidays. mm hm. and
6:28 am
with hello and welcome to worlds apart from the earliest days of nation space security, it has been the most critical and the most controversial issue in europe. and while ensuring it provided both prosperity and development, it has also condemned millions to that death with russia. now, openly rejecting the post cold war security arrangement is another round of confrontation on the continent. a safe bet we'll discuss it. i'm now joined by christopher, who is getting a long time advisor to german chancellor angle america and elected chairman of the munich security conference. and best, it's great to see you. great to talk to you. thank you very much for your time.
6:29 am
thank you very much. i to, to meet them to be with you. the minutes security conference is one of the top platforms for discussing difficult security dilemmas. and your chairmanship comes at a time of the most accurate disagreements gets in russia and the west, over your crane and a host of other issues. i wonder, why would you even want this job? what are your aspirations? no, my ratings are exactly for the reason that the unit security conference was established and that is talk, talk and meet and discuss and new security conference all for this opportunity. we are very fortunate to have had over the last years a representatives from over the world. and we are very happy to have president putin but also as a regular for
6:30 am
a week. so we're looking forward to having a meeting. and because this is one of the problems i think we ought to experience in official, in our private lives that we don't have enough conversations or so i think that's the least of our challenges for the time being given there. the scope of problems that exist at russia and the west. i you said in a recent interview with speaking that you have eliminated the term, the west. from you of a cabbie, larry, what do you have replaced it? when we all remember the east west confrontation calling for the cold war and it in 199991 and we don't.
