Top 5 topics in the Russian media for the week (November 21-27, 2022)

The theme of the special military operation remains the absolute leader in the Russian information space. At the same time, the second topic in terms of the number of messages is closely related to the "SVO" - partial mobilization.

The Russian media continue to call the military operations against Ukraine almost exclusively a “special military operation”: over the past seven days, it has been called a war 64 times less often than "SVO".

The other two most cited events were the recent CSTO summit in Yerevan, and the missile attacks on Ukraine's critical infrastructure and the resulting blackout. These topics prevailed in terms of the number of mentions over all the others – even the adoption of a law banning LGBT people, searches in the Kiev-Pechersk Lavra, marginal prices for Russian oil, etc.
