Act on advertising violations made by medical center validated
MOSCOW, February 17 - RAPSI. The Moscow Commercial Court has refused to satisfy Kundala's lawsuit to invalidate the Federal Antimonopoly Service's resolution imposing a fine on the company for false advertising.
Kundala is being fined for advertising its Marshak Clinic, which promoted services to help consumers rid themselves of alcohol dependency.
In November, the service fined Kundala 110,000 rubles ($3,660) for running medical ads on the TV, as the Healthcare Ministry asserts that alcoholism is a chronic disease that cannot be treated.
According to the service, the ads provided false information that contradicted legislation as alcoholism cannot be treated.
