The government's office, which is in charge of the residence, told BNS that "the prime minister currently did not live in the residence, and the residence is not used for other functions, as well."

Tomas Beržinskas, spokesman for the prime minister, said Skvernelis was still thinking whether he should move into the residence.

"The prime minister's decision should come in the nearest future," Beržinskas told BNS.

Skvernelis is guarded by officers of the VIP Protection Department. The department's chief Rymantas Mockevičius told BNS that the prime minister's safety measures were ensured in his current home.

Before taking the post, Skvernelis said he would prefer to stay in his home outside Vilnius rather than move to the Turniškės residence, if possible.

The Skvernelis-led government was sworn in on December 13 last year.
