A man wearing the outfit of iconic movie villain Darth Maul (centre, in black), surrounded by men dressed as Emperor’s Royal Guards, takes part in a protest in front of the Central Election Commission building in Kiev, Ukraine, yesterday. The man, who announced he was running for president as the official candidate of the Ukrainian Internet Party, and who has often been seen on Kiev’s Independence Square during the winter protests flanked by his loyal Stormtroopers, has been chosen the candidate of the party, which has become known for its theatrical public stunts.
