• Ukraine continues to lead the ranking of mentions, followed, as in March, by Russia and the EU. Compared to March, the ranking remains unchanged, with one exception: NATO, which moves up one position, swapping places with China. It is also worth noting that all the analyzed actors recorded a drop in the number of mentions.
  • Ukraine remains first in the top of the views as well, being followed at some distance by the US, Russia, and the EU. From a quantitative point of view, the list of mentions remains unchanged compared to March, with the exception of the roundabout between the US and Russia. In this case, there is also a decrease in the impact of mentions for all monitored actors.
  • The vast majority of the actors considered are mentioned more on social networks than in the online press. Exceptions are the US and Great Britain, which have more mentions in the online press. In terms of the impact of mentions, the ratio between online media and social networks is balanced: the impact of online media mentions is greater in the case of half of the actors (Ukraine, Russia, USA, France, Great Britain); for the other half (EU, Germany, NATO, China, Israel), social media mentions have a greater impact.
  • There are still many mentions of monitored actors in the context of the war in Ukraine. However, there are also other issues that provide visibility, some related to the war in Ukraine, such as the grain crisis (which brought mentions for the EU) or Finland’s accession to NATO (with mentions for NATO and the US), and others unrelated to Russia’s aggression, such as the social situation in France, the China-Taiwan relationship, the visit of the German Chancellor to Romania or the indictment of Donald Trump.
