Transcript: The Last Word with Lawrence O’Donnell, 4/22/21 (with TOLOKONNIKOVA of Pussy Riot)

O`DONNELL: Nadya, I`ve discussed this with you on this program. I`ve discussed it with you privately. Your bravery, Alexei Navalny`s bravery is just stunning to watch. It`s not something that I can comprehend. It`s not something that I can imagine feeling myself and acting on. Where does it come from? What in the Russian character or in Russian life takes you to this point? TOLOKONNIKOVA: I bet you would do the same in our place. We just want to be on the right side of history and we are driven by ethics. And we all, at the bottom of our hearts, we all want to be good human beings. So it`s just — we want to see better Russia. We see amazing talented people who are not able to fulfill their full potential. A lot of them are leaving. And there is whole generation of young Russians and a generation of my kid and a little bit older who are growing up seeing just Putin. And most of them, they don`t like him because they see that — they don`t have — they don`t have a lot of chances in their life just because of one person who holds the power for 21 years.
