Top 5 terms in Russian media for the week (June 19 -25, 2023)
The "Wagner" PMC has jumped to the top of the most mentioned terms in the Russian information space for the first time in the entire observation period. The resonance of the armed uprising was so great that the "Wagner" group has pulled away from NATO, which took second place, by more than twice. The ongoing Ukrainian counteroffensive has taken the third place and continues to be in the focus of Russian media. Russian army has taken only the fourth place, and defence has taken the fifth, as the main method of conducting military operations for it at the moment.
The information space was analysed using a refined methodology based on monitoring 3200 Russian websites, telegram channels, YouTube channels, and significant accounts on VKontakte, Instagram and Facebook.
