The Ministry of Justice said it will complete a project to translate 52 of Estonia's most important laws in Russian by the end of the month.

Andri Maimets, an adviser to the ministry, told uudised.err.ee that the laws will be translated, then edited and checked by legal translators.

The Ministry is also planing to translate a state legal-help website, www.juristaitab.ee, into Russian and begin to offer legal advice in the language.

Estonian laws are currently available in Estonian and English.
