Ukraine expects IMF decision on $1.4 bln tranche on Aug 29

KIEV, Aug 8 (Reuters) - Ukraine expects that a decision on disbursement of a second $1.4 billion tranche of aid by the International Monetary Fund under a $17 billion loan programme will be adopted on Aug. 29, Central Bank chief Valeria Hontareva said on Friday.

Ukraine, which is battling pro-Russian separatist rebels in the east of the country and whose economy has been in recession since 2012, received a first tranche of $3.2 billion under the programme in May.
