Akaki Lekiachvili is a doctor living in Atlanta, GA. Six years ago, he embarked on a project to build a life-size X-Wing fighter. Raised in the country of Georgia under the Soviet Union, Akaki knows Russian oppression firsthand. So, when Putin invaded Ukraine, he decided to use the public draw of his X-Wing to raise money for the embattled country.
To get further attention for this effort, he made this amazing music video. He's now showing the ship at various public events and using it as an opportunity to raise money for the Ukrainian war effort.
As Akaki has said in interviews, he cannot imagine a better example of a rebel alliance fighting an evil empire than Ukraine fending off Russia.
