Chewbacca has been arrested in Ukraine while campaigning for Darth Vader

  • Twitter

On Sunday, Chewbacca was stopped and later taken into custody in Ukraine as a result of him campaigning for Darth Vader in the mayoral elections in Odessa and failing to produce proper identification.

It took four officers to restrain and handcuff Chewbacca as he was not an easy one to control. He was only fined around £5 but said he wouldn’t be able to pay as his money is in an intergalactic bank and there aren’t any branches on this planet.

The force does not seem to be with Darth Vader either. Last year he applied for presidency but his application was “questionable” and potentially forged. This year it seems that Darth Sidious, also known as Emperor Palpatine, seems to be favoured as the one being elected a seat in Ukraine’s fourth largest city, Odessa.

This Ukrainian Internet Party was founded in 2007 and is based in Odessa with over 11 million members. They campaign for implementing an electronic government and basic computer lessons for citizens to assist them in transitioning away from paper and into the digital world. Their slogan is, "electronic government against bureaucracy".

In Odessa a statue of the founder of the Soviet Union, Vladimir Lenin, was changed by an artist and transformed into Darth Vader as a way to remove communist symbols. You can stay connected as this statue on a plinth includes a Wi-Fi enabled helmet.
