Russia's state-run gas monopoly Gazprom can reroute its gas transit to Europe from Belarus to Ukraine if necessary, Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin said on Monday.

"If necessary, we can reroute gas transit to other routes, for instance, to the Ukrainian gas transmission network," Putin said, adding that Ukraine transits 105 billion cubic meters of gas every year.

"We can transit 120, 130 [billion cubic meters] and more," he said.

Russia is cutting gas deliveries to Belarus over a $200 million debt and there are fears supplies to Europe could be affected.
