Top 5 terms in the Russian media for the week (May 1 - 7, 2023)
In an alternative reality portrayed by Kremlin propaganda, the Russian army continues to advance. The mention of the Private Military Company "Wagner" is associated with its attributed status as the avant-garde and with the resonant accusations of Prigozhin against the Russian generals. It is striking that the Russian army is mentioned in the media much less frequently than the private military company. The focus on NATO remains stable. However, the "terrorists" who supposedly destabilize Russia from within are constantly mentioned.
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.
