Ukraine GDP May Rise 6%

KIEV — Ukraine’s economy will expand 6 percent this year, Valeriy Lytvytskyi, adviser to the governor of the country’s central bank, said Friday.

Output will expand 6.2 percent to 6.4 percent in the second quarter, Lytvytskyi told reporters. Growth has been helped by external demand and a revival of domestic demand, he said.

Gross domestic product fell 15 percent in Ukraine last year.
