Shedding its Communist past, Odessa converts Lenin statue into a monument to Darth Vader

Ukraine's fascination with Darth Vader continues, as a factory in
Odessa unveils the world's first Darth Vader monument. The figure is the
work of local artist Alexander Milov, who's previously designed a
gigantic robot statue, erected in the city of Yuzhne, outside Odessa.
Milov's statue is more than art: there's also a router built into
Vader's head, delivering Wi-Fi to the area around the Sith Lord.



Milov created the Vader statue by repurposing an existing Lenin statue
that previously stood at the factory. The statue was scheduled for
demolition, in accordance with a new Ukrainian law on de-Communization,
requiring the elimination of all landmarks and geographic names
dedicated to Lenin and other Communist figures. Workers at this Odessa
factory, however, requested that the statue be redesigned, rather than
demolished.
