Star Wars fan claims free plot of land - so Darth Vader can park his spacecraftWhen Darth Vader stormed into a Ukrainian mayor's office demanding somewhere to park his spacecraft, the authorities needed a dramatic solution.
The Star Wars villain cited the country's new legislation that every citizen has the right to claim 1,000 square metres of land.
His invasion came after the city of Odessa agreed to grant attractive plots along the Black Sea coast to a group of people, prompting local concerns over corruption.

He added: 'Knowing that many [local legislature] deputies and the mayor have switched to the dark side…
'I have come for a land plot… for my space cruiser.'

A video of his escapades on YouTube was accompanied by the Imperial March music, composed for the Star Wars films by composer John Williams.
'The application has been registered and will be considered,' said a spokeswoman for the mayor's office.
'We are not on the dark side, we are light-side people.'
