Justification logics were introduced by Artemov in 1995 to provide intuitionistic logic with a classical provability semantics, a problem originally posed by Gödel. Justification logics are refinements of modal logics and formally connected to them by so-called realization theorems. A constructive proof of a realization theorem typically relies on a cut-free sequent-style proof system for the corresponding modal logic. A uniform realization theorem for all the modal logics of the socalled modal

However, the proof was not modular in that some realization theorems required postprocessing in the form of translation on the justification logic side. This translation relied on additional restrictions on the language of the justification logic in question, thus, narrowing the scope of realization theorems. We present a fully modular proof of the realization theorems for the modal cube that is based on modular nested sequents introduced by Marin and Straßburger.
