UKRAINE-POLITICS-DARTH-VADER

Credit: SERGEI SUPINSKY / Staff
A leader of the Ukrainian Internet Party, wearing a Darth Vader outfit from the Star Wars saga, stands on December 20, 2012 on Independence Square in Kiev during a happening. The party activists, who traditionally wear Star Wars costumes during their actions, distributed canned foods, matches, condoms, toilet paper, soap, lightbulbs and 'tickets' for their spacecraft evacuation to passersby to supposedly save Ukrainians from the end of the world on December 21. The date marks the end of an era that lasted over 5,000 years, according to the Mayan 'Long Count' calendar. Some believe that the date, which coincides with the December solstice, marks the end of the world as foretold by Mayan hieroglyphs -- an idea ridiculed by scholars.
