Holding a Cyrillic banner that read, ‘Free Derek Chauvin’, the 31-year old musician protested the April 20 conviction of Minneapolis policeman Derek Chauvin for the “murder” of George Floyd — an unintended tragedy that sparked the global BLM riots 11 months ago.

Sasha Sql was quickly detained by Russian police, who are assigned to protect foreign diplomatic property. The rapper was soon released. “As soon as they figured out that I was standing up for their fellow  American police officer, the Moscow policemen laughed and let me go,” Sasha told the largest Russian conservative radio station Komsomolskaya Pravda.

His protest gained the attention of US-British pundit Milo Yiannopoulos, “Russian rapper Sasha Sql outside the US embassy in Moscow. How many American musicians are protesting this miscarriage of justice?” Yiannopoulos wrote on Telegram, gaining roughly 37,000 views and 550 comments, mostly positive.

For one growing up in church, they could get the idea that sanctification is a process. That one becomes holier the closer he adheres to God's law and commandments now that they have received the free gift of salvation. However, righteousness is completely free! It is available to us through the finished work of Christ. It is all His doing. All His work! None of our own, lest we should boast. This is good news!
