KIEV, Aug. 16 (Xinhua) -- Ukraine's gross domestic product (GDP) grew by 6 percent in the second quarter of 2010 from a year earlier, the State Statistics Committee of Ukraine said in a report on Monday.
According to the report, Ukraine's economy grew 3.9 percent in the second quarter of 2010 compared to the first quarter, taking into account seasonal factors.
The state statistics committee didn't specify any other data, in particular the dynamics of year-on-year GDP growth in the first half of 2010 and the nominal GDP.
Earlier, Ukraine's Prime Minister Mykola Azarov said that Ukraine's GDP in the first half of 2010 had grown by 6.3 percent.
The Ukrainian government forecast the country's GDP in 2010 will rise 3.7 percent after a 15.1 percent decline in 2009.
The International Monetary Fund in late July said it expected Ukraine's GDP to grow by 3.7 percent in 2010, and by 4.3 percent in 2011.
