The Estonie Soviet Socialist Republic (Estonie: Eesti Nõukogude Sotsialistlik Vabariik, abbreviatit as Eesti NSV or ENSV; Roushie: Эстонская Советская Социалистическая Республика, Estonskaya Sovetskaya Sotsalisticheskaya Respublika, abbreviated as ЭССР, ESSR), aften abbreviatit as Estonie SSR or ESSR, wis a republic o the Soviet Union, admeenistered bi an subordinatit tae the Govrenment o the Soviet Union.[1][2] The ESSR wis initially established on the territory o the Republic o Estonie on 21 Julie 1940, follaein the invasion o Soviet troops on 17 Juin 1940 an the installation o a puppet govrenment[3] backed bi the Soviet Union, whilk declared Estonie a Soviet state. The Estonie SSR wis subsequently incorporatit intae the USSR on 9 August 1940.[4][5] This territory wis occupeed bi Nazi Germany frae 1941 tae 1944 an aw.

Maist kintras[6] did no recognise the incorporation o Estonie de jure an anerlie recognisit its Soviet govrenment de facto or no at aw.[7][8][9] A feck o thir kintras continued tae recognise Estonie diplomats an consuls wha still functioned in the name o their umwhile govrenments.[10] This policy o nan-recognition gied rise tae the principle o legal continuity, whilk held that de jure, Estonie remained an unthirlt state unner illegal occupation throu the hale period 1940–91.[11]

The unthirldom o the Republic o Estonie wis reestablished on 20 August 1991.
