somebody came reports from berlin. this coal being unloaded in the german town of linebarger is from russia party, one of the last consignments to germany before the e. u. embargo took hold. until recently, much of the energy used in germany came from russian fossil fuels. but now it's colon band, it's oil is soon to follow. and far less of its gas is being piped here than was planned. meaning across the country, much of industry is having to contemplate buying fossil fuels from elsewhere. i think there will be only a temporal return of the coal fired power plants to the market. so this is a non, not long term solution. this is the solution for the next 3, maybe 4 years, which is a significant contribution to solving the gas problem or the security of supply problem. but it is not sustainable long term perspective. the difficulties of the
8:13 pm
german government is that many of its leaders has spent much of their political lives looking to phase out fossil fuels. and yet they now find themselves having to buy them in on a short term basis. we have, in the opinion, we see how dependent we are on energy imports from all over the world. and in this case, especially from russia, it's important to know that we in germany have technical abilities that are realistic and produced economically functioning, jobs and economic value, which can help us free ourselves from this dependency and defend our own sovereignty, pinkish cats. but saying that and doing that all to different things because very many power stations and industries have based their plans on an uninterrupted delivery of coal. and more often gas, such as here, the hood is a new minion foundry, insult towel, where rising gas prices mean managers are having to change their working practices . i'm with this and that's what it is. i hope to find setting up a foundry like this, hitting up, the furnace is very energy intensive. so shutting it down in the evening or
8:14 pm
overnight and then hitting it up again in the morning. is crazily expensive? that's why we now either run it around the clock in 3 ships. we'll shut it off completely. the company that runs this power station decided to get out of a dependency on russian coal. soon after the war and ukraine began, that country took longer to follow suit, but have now done so, as it must be said, has the e u. but getting out of a dependence on russian gas is proving much more difficult. dominant cane al jazeera berlin, still ahead on how to 0, a huge by add an oil depot is contained. the cube is energy crisis is far from over on and angle in bangladesh as an energy crisis, there leads to a dramatic increase in the price of fuel. ah

8:21 pm
migrants arrived in italy from livia. now in 2022 from january to august. that number has, has exceeded 34000 people, so the whole numbers are increasing. and a large part of the reason why is because libya is politically divided. there are 2 governments at the moment, so there's a lack of stability. the libyan authorities are saying that they're in a difficult situation. so when migrants arrived to europe, the european union are not happy with that. but when, when the coast guard brings back these migrants and put to live and put them in detention centers, human rights organizations say that there is ill treatment and human right, abusive. so it's a very difficult challenge for libyan authorities to be able to balance those out. but the situation, unless the libyans can come together with a political agreement,
