Estonian Russians to get Estonian surnames

Estonia's Ministry for Regional Affairs has suggested amendments into the legislation to give additional grounds to native Russians to change their surnames, Postimees reported.
      The amendments will help Russians living in Estonia get an Estonian surnames if they thus wish to integrate into the Estonian community. The Ministry hopes this will positively affect Russians' integration into the community.
