MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Argentina and Latin America in general are experiencing a political rollback coinciding with the rising interest of the United States in the region, former Argentinian President Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner told Sputnik.
"I think that a rollback of regional national and popular governments can be observed. The forces which could be described as 'right-wing conservatives' are moving forward," de Kirchner said.
She added that the United States are once again, as they did before the 9/11 terrorist attack, returning to the region "which they always treated as almost their own source of energy, food supplies, minerals and water resources."
Kirchner is accused of defrauding the state of over $5 billion. She allegedly manipulated the central bank to set an artificially low rate for dollar sales on futures markets. Central bank president Alejandro Vanoli and former Economy Minister Axel Kicillof were charged alongside the nation’s deposed leader in May.
Earlier in July, Argentina's federal judge Claudio Bonadio ordered to arrest all her assets.
