Russian police detained two activists Monday after they floated a giant inflatable killer whale on the Moskva River outside the Kremlin to call on authorities to protect the creatures, protesters said.Environmental campaign group Greenpeace said it had staged the stunt to urge authorities to ban the capture of whales for educational or cultural purposes after dozens of beluga and killer whales were caught last year to be sold to marine parks or aquariums in China.The captured whales became a cause celebre when they were kept in cramped enclosures in Russia's Far East that were likened by activists to a whale prison.
