Darth Vader comes to Odessa, Ukraine, to claim a land plot

Kind of hilarious, but actually an anti-corruption public action:
(Reuters) - Welcoming the local authorities' move to the dark side, Darth Vader has asked for a land plot in the Ukrainian Black Sea port of Odessa to park his space ship.

An Odessite dressed as the Star Wars villain visited the mayor's office this week to claim a free land plot citing Ukrainian legislation which grants every citizen the right to own 1,000 square metres of land.

This action came as an answer to the city authorities' recent decision to grant lucrative plots of land to several people who presumably have personal ties to the mayor of Odessa and/or his administration officials.

Gotta start building that new Death Star somewhere, the Ukraine sounds like as good a place as any!
