MOSCOW, April 2 (Reuters) - The Russian rouble extended gains on Thursday, helped by a modest retreat in the U.S. dollar on global markets and a strong rise in oil prices late on Wednesday.

At 0750 GMT, the rouble was around 1.1 percent stronger against the dollar at 56.97 and was around 0.3 percent up on the euro at 61.77.
