Welcome to a special edition of our Media Insights newsletter, "War on Ukraine". This issue features five short videos reflecting different aspects of the war:
->How much does the war in Ukraine cost?
->We've already lost, the rest is just a matter of time.
->'Partial' mobilization leads to flight from the country.
->No to war.
->Officials don't give a damn.
All videos are available on our Telegram channel 'На самом деле медиа'. It offers a unique perspective - Topics of the Day as well as 3-5 other issues - how the Russian state media interpret the ongoing "special military operation" in Ukraine, and how the same events are covered by the independent media.
Our regular newsletters on the website provide a detailed weekly overview of these two different perspectives (through mid-August) and a summary of the topics of the day presented by our Telegram channel 'In fact, the media' (since mid-August). You can find all the previous issues on our website.
[How much does the war in Ukraine cost?]
What can be done with the money Russia loses daily on the war it has started in Ukraine? We used several estimates of the cost of each day of the war in Ukraine and calculated the Kremlin's total costs to date.
[We've already lost, the rest is just a matter of time]
Military bloggers who support Russia and have contacts on the front lines have begun accusing the Kremlin of failing to achieve its tactical goals as the fighting in Ukraine continues into its seventh month.
['Partial' mobilization leads to flight from the country]
How many people must die for one man's imperialist dreams? Mass exodus of precocious soldiers from Russia to neighboring countries and beyond.
[No to War]
Mobilization will have dire consequences for many poor ethnic regions of Russia. Mothers and wives of conscripts do not want their husbands and sons to die in the war. Especially because the war is senseless, and they know that Russia started it. So they protest very loudly. But will anyone listen to them?
[Officials don't give a damn]
After the announcement of partial mobilization, Russians began asking questions to their leaders' children will they go to the front themselves?
How many more people must die in this senseless war? What is the official version of the Russian authorities and what might be the reality.
