Putin says Germany is shooting itself in foot by not buying Russian gas via Nord Stream 2

(Reuters) - Russian President Vladimir Putin said that Germany's refusal to certify the Nord Stream 2 pipeline and buy Russian gas from it did not make economic sense for Berlin which was instead paying much more for U.S. liquefied natural gas.

Putin told an energy conference in Moscow he could not understand why Germany was still ready to buy Russian gas pumped via Ukraine but not to buy gas piped via Nord Stream 2.

"It's some kind of nonsense," said Putin.
