Mikhail Baryshnikov on criticizing Vladimir Putin: I will be 75 years old. What have I to lose?

From CBS News by CBS Sunday Morning

World-renowned ballet dancer Mikhail Baryshnikov made international headlines when he defected from the Soviet Union in 1974. He has remained largely non-political ever since. Now, Baryshnikov tells Anthony Mason in an interview for "CBS Sunday Morning," that he can no longer stay silent about Russia's invasion of Ukraine.

"I couldn't stay silent this time," Baryshnikov said. "I was born in Soviet – at that time Soviet Latvia – in a family of a military officer."
