Russo-Antarctic Nationalism (often known in Antarctica simply as Russian Nationalism; frequently shortened to RAN) is an ethnic, political and cultural movement supporting the rights of ethnic Russians in Antarctica. Supporters commonly campaign for political autonomy for Russians, and seek to create autonomous or semi-autonomous "Oblasts" for Russians in different regions of the continent. Alternatively, many other supporters have suggested that Bellinsgauzenia should annex all Russian-majority areas; thereby creating a single nation which would encompass all Antarctic Russians.
The RAN movement is made up of a very diverse political base, though all groups are united by a common support of ethnic Russian rights. The political alignments of its sub-groups range from Monarchism (Neo-White Movement) to Fascism (Russian Continental Army) to moderate Centrism (Gorchakovists)
