The aim of the article is to explore the place and role of the Constitutional Court of Ukraine in the mechanism of constitutional cultural rights and freedoms protection within the context of Ukrainian constitutional justice reforming. The subject of research is the protection of constitutional cultural rights and freedoms of citizens by the Constitutional Court of Ukraine. Methodology. Scientific research is based on the use of philosophical, general, and special scientific methods and techniques of scientific cognition. The dialectic method allows examining the phenomenon of protection of constitutional cultural rights and freedoms of citizens by the Constitutional Court of Ukraine within the dynamics of its evolution and interaction with other legal concepts. The systemic method made it possible to present the mechanism of protection of constitutional cultural rights and freedoms of citizens as a combination of interrelated elements. The formal-legal method was used to analyse the regulatory framework of protection of constitutional cultural rights and freedoms of citizens by the Constitutional Court of Ukraine along with relevant decisions of this judicial body. Results obtained upon completion of the research give an opportunity to claim that the protection of constitutional cultural rights and freedoms of citizens by the Constitutional Court of Ukraine may be performed on the basis of both direct and indirect access of persons to the constitutional jurisdiction body through the regulatory compliance assessment (constitutional recourse and initiation of legal action by certain state power bodies and its officials through constitutional claim filing). Practical outcomes. Research provides: examination of doctrinal and applicable aspects of the Constitutional Court of Ukraine activity on the protection of constitutional rights and freedoms of citizens; characteristics of general theoretical essence of constitutional cultural rights and freedoms of citizens with distinguished types; analysis of peculiarities of protection of constitutional cultural rights and freedoms of citizens by the Constitutional Court of Ukraine in the course of its powers exercising.
