Top 5 topics in Russian media for the week (May 15-21, 2023)
Russian information space, through the long-term observations, shows the undeniable domination of the "SMO" topic. All other top topics are somehow related to the war against Ukraine. Some minor local changes have happened in the reporting period, comparing to the last week, - the topic of fighting against "foreign agents" pushed the "mobilization" topic to the fifth place.
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.
