A year ago, in April 2022, 25 of the 25 most popular news on Mezha were devoted to the supply of military equipment, new types of weapons, and the impact of hostilities in Ukraine on the situation in the world. Now, of the Top 25 news of April 2023, only three can be tentatively attributed to those related to the war. The war receded into the background, became a common phenomenon, and most Ukrainians returned to the same habits as two, three, or five years ago. There are no free seats in cafes and restaurants, parks are buzzing with vacationers on weekends, and people are planning big purchases and vacations.

This is normal. It’s life. This is what happens in any protracted war. But one should not forget at what price this normality is obtained. Do not forget to thank our military, who give their lives every day so that the majority of Ukrainians do not experience war. Do not forget to help the front and volunteers with money and/or your time. The war is not over yet, and although its outcome is already known, victory is still a long way off.

Nevertheless, let’s move on to the statistics of Mezha for April 2023.

We have repeatedly said that the majority of visits to our site, as in fact to almost any site, come from mobile platforms – Android and iOS. And what about other OS?
