The Patriots' Front (Soravian: Патріотичний фронт; Patriotychnyy front) is the ruling political coalition in the Soravian Republic. Founded in 1981 by Sava Tokar, Vasil Bodnar and Zynovij Ihnatenko during the Sostava War, the Patriots' Front initially consisted of eight parties that banded together to oppose Vilem Gardos' Soravian Nationalist Party. Over time, the coalition was refined into two main parties as well as several smaller parties.

The Patriots' Front has held constant power in Soravia since 1982, and has produced six presidents, the most recent being incumbent Valentina Goga, who also serves as the leader of the front. It holds 87 of the Vojnaskul's 100 seats, 413 of the Duma's 500 seats and over 2,000 seats in various local governments across the country.
