'Darth Vader' Storms Ukrainian Justice Ministry

Activists dressed as the evil commander Darth Vader from the "Star Wars" films and members of his Imperial Guard tried to enter the Justice Ministry in Kyiv. The activists were seeking an appointment with Justice Minister Oleksandr Lavrynovych to demand that the ministry stop pressuring the Internet Party of Ukraine, which advocates technological improvements to eliminate bureaucracy. Security guards demanded that Darth Vader remove his helmet, to no avail. The activists then left the ministry, threatening they would return. (RFE/RL's Ukrainian Service)
