The year 2018, which was full of different events, is coming to an end. Some of them were remembered more, others were quickly forgotten. The company “Yandex” has compiled lists of topics that turned out to be the focus of attention of Belarusians – these are events, personalities and things that worried more than others. For calculations, we used data on requests for the period from January 1 to November 19, 2018.
The most significant events, judging by the requests, were the World Cup, the Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang and the fire in the Winter Cherry shopping center. The most interesting personalities for the Belarusians were Habib Nurmagomedov, Gauguin Solntsev and Diego Maradona, and recalled the past stars – Joseph Kobzon, Oleg Tabakov and Marina Poplavskaya.
Among the electronic novelties, the first places in terms of the number of requests were taken by the Huawei P20 Lite, the Huawei P20 Pro and the Xiaomi Redmi Note 5. Cinema-lovers learned information about the films Avengers: War of Infinity, Deadpool 2 and Upward Movement. Fans of the series made inquiries about “Major”, “Policemen from Rublevka” and “House Arrest” (to all appearances, the Belarusians watch almost exclusively Russian TV shows, the same goes for the TV show).
The most popular games were Far Cry 5, Fortnite and quite unexpectedly Kingdom Come: Deliverance. As for music, the leaders were Phillip Kirkorov (“The mood color is blue”), Kazka (“Crying”) and Tim Belarussky (“Wet crosses”).
