Ukraine, he is your candidate.
A costumed protester dressed as Darth Vader is running for president of the Eastern European nation. He announced his candidacy at a press conference Saturday, accompanied by guards dressed as Stormtroopers.
In an ominous statement, the purported Sith Lord promised "to restore former glory [and] to return lost territories and pride for this country" – a reference to Russia's recent annexation of Ukraine's Crimean peninsula.

Actor Richard LeParmentier, whose character Admiral Motti was viciously attacked by Darth Vader in 1977's Star Wars for not believing in The Force, died Tuesday morning while visiting his family in Austin, Texas, they announced.
His publicist, Derek Maki, told the Associated Press that the death was unexpected. No cause was given.
In a statement, his children – Rhiannon, Stephanie and Tyrone LeParmentier – said: "At age 66, Richard Le Parmentier is one with the Force. We're deeply grateful to the many devoted fans who have posted personal remembrances of our dad as a warm, genuine person with an unparalleled joie de vivre and gift for friendship (not to mention a mean petanque player)." Petanque is a European game, like bocce ball.
