ABSTRACT
The article discusses ultra-nationalism, geopolitics, and exceptionalism in Slovakia under the regime of Prime Minister Vladimír Mečiar in the 1990s. The Slovak foreign policy, which resulted from the expectation that a Russo-German axis would develop and dominate Europe, supported Mečiar's authoritarian government which ignored the United States' and the European Union's efforts to promote democratization in Slovakia. The Slovak Motherland movement, the Slovak National Party, the neo-communist Union of the Workers of Slovakia, and Mečiar's Movement for a Democratic Slovakia are discussed.
