While the world awaits the debut of the latest Star Wars installment, Ukraine’s Darth Mykolaiovych Vader has some chores to do. He’s got to iron his cloak, vacuum his apartment, and prepare dinner for his family.

The Odessa resident, who enjoyed the spotlight earlier this year when he ran for office, invited Reuters photographer Valentyn Ogirenko to photograph his daily life as the leader of the Galactic Empire.
