The article proposes the concept of “civilizational subjectivity of a country”, its qualitative characteristics and key parameters. It is shown that the people of Ukraine tend to the humanistic quality of subjectivity. It is argued that the strengthening of the subjectivity of Ukraine in the world is possible only through the humanistic direction and the preservation and development of moral values of Christian civilization. In the historical aspect, the manifestation in the past of the will of the Ukrainian people to their own civilizational subjectivity and the real consequences of this are analyzed. The dialectical connection between the national security of the country and its civilizational subjectivity in the modern world is discussed.
