Is modern Estonian still Finno-Ugric and to what extent?

Fenno-Ugria organizes

Linguist Kristiina Ross introduces the book ‘This king because of honour, hellishness and jealousy. Estonian Language 1632-1732’ and talks about what we can conclude about the birth of the Estonian written language. Linguist Sven-Erik Soosaar compares the Finno-Ugric and Indo-European languages typologically and talks about how the birth of our written language has made the Estonian language more Indo-European.
