SAMARA, Russia, Nov. 29 (UPI) -- Russian regulators in the Samara region said they are taking action against an advertising firm for promoting vodka as a drink with health benefits.

The Federal Anti-monopoly Service for Samara said an online advertisement by the Direct Line firm also lacked mandatory warnings about health risks associated with alcohol abuse, RIA Novosti reported Monday.

"(Vodka) improves digestion, and helps get rid of colds and headache," the advertisement said.

It also said the liquor "alleviates fatigue and bad moods," the FAS said.

The agency did not specify the action being taken against Direct Line.
