Artist Aleksander Milov helped to cast the new sculpture of Darth Vader over an existing statue of communist leader Vladimir Lenin in the Ukraine that also serves as a Wi-Fi hotspot. The change was done to make the statue compliant with a new law in Ukraine banning the display of communist symbols.  The result is just a little ominous, given that Ukraine is a nation facing possible conquest.
