Sculpture of Soviet leader transformed into Darth Vader.

A Soviet-era statue of Vladimir Lenin in Odessa was transformed into a tongue-in-cheek tribute to Darth Vader (r.), according to local news site Dumskaya.The original statue was ordered destroyed under the country’s new decommunization law, but workers at a nearby factory requested that the statue be redesigned.

While most communist relics will be removed or destroyed, this particular Lenin statue has been repurposed. “The bronze Lenin was left inside, so that the grateful or not-so-grateful descendants could exhume him, if needed,” Milov is quoted as saying by Ukraine Today. In 2014, the leader of the Ukrainian Internet Party ran for mayor of Odessa under the name Darth Vader — and even sported the movie villain’s guise. The imposing “Star Wars”-inspired statue stands outside of a factory where workers had asked that the outgoing sculpture be redesigned rather than destroyed.
