Top 5 terms in Russian media for the week ( August 28- September 3, 2023)
The military-political bloc NATO has been mentioned the most in Russian media for the last week. The second most frequently mentioned term was the Ukrainian counteroffensive, which the propaganda persistently called a "failure". Russian army made it only to the third place, while defence to the fourth, as the most relevant way of its application today. Private military company "Wagner" closes the top five, the prospects of which are still being discussed in the context of the death of Yevgeny Prigozhin and its key commanders.
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.
