What were the main stories last week?

Estonia's first Russian-language TV channel ETV+ started broadcasting on Monday morning. The channel launched with a morning program “Coffee+”.

It became public last week that about 250,000 Estonian ID-cards suffer from a coding mistake that, if not fixed, could cause problems for Google Chrome users in the future. The problem also affects all 5,000 e-residency cards issued to date.

Estonian government approved the draft bill for the next year’s Estonia’s state budget and handed it over for deliberation to the Parliament on Tuesday. The opposition has already called the budget unbalanced.

One of the things that will require some money is the government's plan to rename over 600 bus stops that are in the wrong case, include abbreviations, miss a space, and are commercial or misleading.

Money is also an issue for Volkswagen AG, which disclosed on Wednesday that there are over 2,000 cars and utility vehicles with "defeat device" on the Estonian roads.

On Friday, Estonia and Italy signed a cooperation agreement for the relocation asylum seekers currently in Italy. Estonia can now go ahead with sending its social and security workers to the camps to interview potential refugees.
