Top 5 surnames in the Russian media for a week (November 28 - December 4, 2022)

Volodymyr Zelensky, as before, ranks second in the frequency of mentions in the Russian media for the past week, ahead of domestic Russian politicians by this indicator by two or more times.

Vladimir Putin is traditionally in the first place in terms of the frequency of mentions: his name appears in the news dozens or more times more often than any other Russian politician or official.

Last week, Dmytro Medvedev took third place in terms of frequency of mentions, confirming the trend that radical and sharp statements, and not a high position, are the key to frequent citations. The same is true for the reasons for Yevgeny Prigozhin's and Volodymyr Solovyov's fourth and fifth places mentioned in the Russian mass media.
