Who is Rich Benjamin ?

Rich Benjamin is known for his Bald and Bankrupt video blogging account. He was detained with Belarusian woman Alina Tseliupa near one of the launch pads in Baikonur last night.

The blogger said police questioned him for hours but did not arrest him and instead released him with a £60 fine.

Benjamin wrote on his Instagram: “I woke up to a bunch of messages asking if I’m okay.” Apparently people think I’m in a Gulag because of a Twitter post.

“Russian police questioned me for a few hours for going to see the Buran rocket without special permission and I was given an administrative fine of £60, just like hundreds of foreign adventurers before me.

Instagram

He took to Instagram to say ‘people think I’m in a Gulag because of a Twitter post’. He said Russian police only questioned him “for a few hours.”

I was not arrested. It is not a criminal offense not to have the permit sheet.

“It is an administrative offense that means only a fine and being told not to do it again, like smoking in the wrong place or jaywalking.

“All the policemen were nice and then they took us to the train station. Anyway, it was a great day. I was able to see the Buran and they are spectacular.

Last night, Dmitry Rogozin, the head of the Roscosmos space agency, raised concerns that the star had been detained after he said on Telegram that Benjamin and Tseliupa had been “linked to the organization of illegal actions”, but gave no further details. .

YouTube channel

Benjamin has more than 3.5 million followers on his YouTube channel, which has recently included videos of the border with Ukraine.

His most popular clip, viewed some 10 million times, documented a trip to Moldova and was titled ‘No one visits this country…Find out why’.

Benjamin’s videos

Some of Benjamin’s videos show a woman named Alina, but it was not immediately clear if she and Tseliupa were the same person.

The most recent video on Rich’s channel was shot in Syria and posted on April 24. In an Instagram post last week, Rich said: “A Syrian tanned and back in a country with Soviet mosaics,” but did not specify where he was.

Baikonur, once a closed Soviet city, is now open to tourists who apply for permission from Roscosmos.

It is located in the steppe about 1,100 km (680 mi) southwest of the Kazakh capital Nur-Sultan.
