Fed Chairman walks out of Russia speech…

Sharing is Caring!

Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen and Federal Reserve chair Jerome Powell walked out of a G20 meeting on Wednesday when the Russian finance minister, Anton Siluanov, started speaking, according to a source familiar with the matter.

State of play: Yellen and Powell were joined by other world leaders, including European Central Bank head Christine Lagarde, Canadian Deputy Prime Minister Chrystia Freeland and Ukraine’s finance minister, Serhiy Marchenko.

  • Siluanov was participating in the meeting virtually. Some finance ministers and central bank governors who were also in the meeting virtually turned their cameras off when Russia spoke, per a source familiar with the meeting.
