By firing three of his cabinet ministers, Prime Minister Saulius Skvernelis has won some time to try and contain the situation, however it is only a temporary solution, public relations expert Arijus Katauskas tells lrt.lt. “If all social groups and especially educators do not back down, the prime minister will have to place the target of criticism on himself. Soon we will start questioning not ministers, but S. Skvernelis himself,” the expert says.
