Putin: Russia ready to extend Ukraine gas deal for short term if needed

MOSCOW, Oct 2 (Reuters) - President Vladimir Putin said on Wednesday that Russia was ready to extend Moscow’s current gas contract with Ukraine for a short time if needed and that Russia would also be ready to work with Ukraine on European Union gas rules.

Speaking at an energy conference in Moscow, Putin said Denmark was under pressure not to approve Russia’s Nord Stream 2 pipeline project to Germany, but that other routes could be used for the pipeline if needed.
