Kesknädal (Estonian for 'Midweek') is a weekly newspaper issued every Wednesday. The paper was started in 1999.[1] It is the organ of the Centre Party, a left-leaning Estonian party.[2]

The paper has been criticized for hiring notable Soviet-era journalists such as Ralf R. Parve, and sometimes accused of harbouring Soviet-like journalistic culture.[citation needed]
