At present, interest in the creative heritage of the writer is growing: his works are read and studied in many languages of the world. Translations of works by L. Tolstoy in the Crimean Tatar literature, as in other national literatures, were updated in the 1930s. Twentieth century. Among the talented translators of works of L. Tolstoy into the Crimean Tatar language should be called Umer Ipchi. The writer translates into his native language "Aji Murat" ("Hadji Murat") and "Kazaklar" ("Cossacks"), which will soon be published as a separate book. Of particular value for the Crimean Tatar reader are the translations of the story "Hadji Murad", made by the Crimean Tatar leader Abdullah Latif-zade. The classic of the Crimean Tatar literature Eshref Shemii-Zadeh also contributed to the study of the works of L. Tolstoy in his native language. He translated into his native language the works of Tolstoy "Hadji Murat", "Cossacks" and "Sevastopol Stories".
