“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.
