Nefyodov have always sympathized with the Russian left radicalism; in March 1881, after the assassination of Tsar Alexander II, he was arrested and briefly incarcerated for having links with Sophia Perovskaya and Andrei Zhelyabov. He is credited with being the first in Russia to publish the story of Salawat Yulayev, a legendary Bashkir rebel, whose name up until then it had been considered risky to mention.

Nefyodov's critically acclaimed short story collection Na miru (На миру, Among People) came out in 1872. The Works of Filipp Nefyodov in 4 volumes was published in 1894-1900.[1]
