Russian National Autonomous Party (Russian: Русская Национально-Автономная Партия, Czech: Ruská nacionálně-autonomní strana) was a political party in Czechoslovakia. It was founded by Štepan Fencik, just ahead of the 1935 Czechoslovak parliamentary election, in March 1935 in Mukachevo. Fencik was elected to parliament. The party published Nash puť ('Our Path').[1]

The party struggled for autonomy for Carpathian Ruthenia. Politically, it displayed anti-semitic and far right characteristics.[2] In the programmatic declarations of the party, it demanded recognition of the Carpatho-Russian national minority, support or Slavic ideas and genuine democracy.[1]
