Top 5 terms in Russian media for the week (July 2-9, 2023)
The interest of Russian media in the North Atlantic Alliance has intensified due to the upcoming NATO summit in Vilnius. NATO has once again taken the top spot in ranking the most used terms in the Russian information space. The ongoing counteroffensive of the Ukrainian army has claimed the second position. The previous week's favourite, the "Wagner" PMC, has dropped to third place. Defence and the Russian army have secured fourth and fifth positions in the weekly ranking respectively.
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.
