This guy has turned a statue of Lenin into Darth Vader

Looks like the Ukrainian president Petro Poroshenko is looking forward to Star Wars too. 

He commissioned famous sculptor Alexander Milov to "decommunize" a statue of Lenin in Odessa by turning the sculpture into one of Darth Vader as part of the eradication on Communist Party symbols.

Bonus: Vader also doubles up as a wi-fi hot spot.

Milov said: 

The Bronze Lenin was left inside, so that the grateful or not so grateful descendants could exhume him, if needed.


Everything glows, everything changes, old figures give wave to new ones, and so the world turns.
