A statue of former Soviet dictator Vladimir Lenin was turned into the iconic Star Wars’ villain, Darth Vader.

“Everything glows, everything changes, old figures give wave to new ones, and so the world turns,” a local factory manager said, according to Ukraine Today.

The sculpture was done by Alexander Milov.

The Darth Vader statue also functions as a free WiFi hotspot. The router was installed in Vader’s head.

Ukraine recently passed laws to outlaw communist propaganda on monuments, and in the names of places and streets.
