Timeline of Said Gafurov


In early 2019 the Russian-German Publishing house “Direct-media” published a book by Gafurov “The Cross, the Crescent and the Arab nation: ideological currents in the Middle East, which is a compendium of the basic ideas of Gafurov’s orientalism. The introduction to the book is a short review of Gafurov’s philosophical and methodological principles. The Russian critic called the book influential but controversial stressing that “Gafurov is trying to break the discourse on Arab countries imposed on Russia from the outside”.


Gafurov is one of leaders of the Russian Social Forum movement. Gafurov participated in writing program documents about the Russian Movement in defense of Labour (which was sharply criticised for its position in support of Putin in his struggle against the restoration of neo-liberalism). In 2017 Gafurov was one of the key organizers of the World Festival of Youth and Students in Sochi, Russia. He made at least 11 speeches during the Festival.

In February 2017, Gafurov in his political TV-show on the channel publicly promised that he would start a campaign to return Crimea to the Ukraine the day after the USA returned Texas, California, New Mexico and Arizona to Mexico.


In 2016 -2017 he formulated the so-called “Gafurov postulate” of political science on Russian TV. According to this hypothesis, in any election “from the United States to the DPRK, from India to Russia, from Switzerland to the People’s China, from Germany to Syria,” the number of illegal, “thrown in” votes is approximately the same, in cases of one or two candidates ranging from 5% to 10% of votes. Gafurov assumes the existence of a stable mathematical expectation of this figure in the presence of a sufficiently large number of polling stations and a large number of elections. “Gafurov’s Political Science Hypothesis” is used to calculate the budgets of election campaigns in Russia.

In 2016 Gafurov twice spoke at the Congresses of the POLISARIO in Algeria as a guest.


For various Russian Economic Ministries Gafurov wrote monographs on Russian foreign economic relations, including “The WTO mechanisms and non-discriminatory operations of Russian oil and gas companies in the European Energy markets” (M. 2014), “The initiative ‘Partnership for Modernization’ and the Russian national interests” (M. 2013); “The Intergovernmental Commissions and the modernization of the Russian economy” (M.2011).

In February 2014 Gafurov declared what he considered should be the principles of Ukrainian settlement:

Later on Gafurov changed his position on Crimea based on the fact that the economic politics of the Ukrainian oligarchy putschists since the 2014 coup d’état had destroyed the economy of the Ukraine; and that the Crimean people (including the Crimean Tatars) would not agree to return to the misery and poverty of the post-democratic dictatorship of the Ukraine regardless of a heartless but rich Russian Bureaucracy regime.


In 2013 Gafurov started working in the field of reorganisation of international political-economic networks guided by Prof. Alexander Buzgalin. Gafurov regularly spoke at international political-economic Congresses, stressing high-scale social demand for political-economic research from the State and business. In his anti-crisis policy concept, Gafurov followed the Keynesian approach. He created a model of interrelations between credit-monetary and fiscal-budget (and anti-monopoly) policies based on institutional differences between governmental bodies.

Gafurov defended the memory of Al-Hakim bi-Amr Allah – an assassinated Fatimid caliph who was later claimed insane by Ismailities, Christians and Sunnites, and deified by the Druzes as well as defense of Syrian and Turkish Alawites.


In 2012 Gafurov became dissatisfied with the level of Russian opera criticism. He began writing operatic criticisms in Russian media including Literaturnaya gazeta,, Svobodnaya pressa, as a result of the sharp rise in the level of Russian opera since the beginning of the millennium. He has concentrated on social aspects of the theatrical side of opera and less on the musical side. It is accepted that Gafurov has reestablished the school of Marxist opera critic in Russian. Gafurov awkwardly believes that opera should be the working class art.


Beginning in 2011 Gafurov worked as Deputy Chief Editor responsible for economic issues of the Russian monthly journal VVP (Gross Domestic Product) known for active support of Vladimir Putin. Under his guidance VVP became one of the most significant bastions of champions of neo-Keynesian and Marxist anti-neo-liberal economic policy in Russia. Nevertheless, the Russian liberals valued Gafurov highly and the Russian liberal Government (Ministry of Industry and Trade, Ministry of Economic Development and Ministry of Energy – but never Ministry of Finance) regularly employed Gafurov as a consultant for foreign economic relations issues.

Since 2011 Gafurov has actively supported the Syrian government in the Russian media, including Russian media in foreign languages. Gafurov was a Deputy Chairman of the Russian Committee for Solidarity with Peoples of Libya and Syria since its founding. Gafurov defended the Syrian government during the uprising in Deraa pointing out that it was a struggle for arable land between the Druzes and Bedouins.

In 2011 during the popular uprising in Libya, Gafurov became one of the most prominent Gaddafi supporters in Russia, though Gafurov claimed that he did not take sides, stating: “Any barricade has only two sides. And if there are your enemies on both it simply means that this is not your barricade”.


Based on the crises of 1998-1999 (Gafurov then was in the Government), 2008-2009 and 2014 – the present, Gafurov elaborated a concept of Mismatch (“Рассогласование”) or Disbalance (“Разбалансировка”) of Credit-Monetary and Fiscal-Budget policies as the main reason of the ineffectiveness of anti-crisis policy. Both the Central Bank and the Ministry of Finance rejected the conclusions of Gafurov based on the absence of such mismatch. However, many meaningful points of Gafurov’s concept remained unanswered.


Gafurov is an open though careful opponent of the concept of Intellectual property. He states: “Letters are everyone’s property” (“Буквы принадлежат всем!”). He argues his position by the common good and by the fact that anyhow the state and philanthropists sponsor most of the modern culture. It puts Gafurov in rather anecdotical and hypocritical position when he invites to his TV-shows Russian scenario play-writers or Russian composers (including the Chairman of the Russian Composers Union Andrey Baturin) involved in copyright disputes. He was one of the first Russian scholars who published his Ph.D. dissertation on the internet as early as in 1996. This led to his involvement in some Russian Dissernet scandals as a source of violated copyright. In 2010-ies Gafurov was several times accused by his opponents in Plagiarism by publishing under his name short news articles from Greek, Indian and Bengali radical Marxist sources (which if not signed by Gafurov would have unlikely been published by Russian mainstream media).


He is a Gorky Tatar (Mişär or Misher) by origin. He graduated in 1992 from the College of Asian and African studies at Moscow State University. In 1997 Gafurov defended his Ph.D. dissertation at the Faculty of Economics of the Moscow State University. He was a Counselor of the Russian Federation. He is the author of monographs and articles. He is a son of Professor Gafurov Zakerya Shagizanovich – colonel, professional revolutionary, creator of the theory of construction of revolutionary armies in developing countries and Gafurova (Khusainova) Anisa Sofovna – a professional artist, secretary of the Moscow Union of Artists. Gafurov married Darya Mitina – a prominent Russian Communist leader, Secretary of the United Communist Party, former co-chairperson of the Left Front (Russia), 1st Secretary of Russian Komsomol and former member of State Duma. They have two sons.


Gafurov is the author of an empirical research monography “Essay on Experience of Comparative Analysis of Privatization and Formation of Corporate Securities Markets in Developing and Post-socialist Countries in 1991-1996” (Moscow State University. Dialog, Moscow, 2000) and works on the theory and practice of the political economy of property.


Gafourov’s article that Russian President Dmitry Medvedev was cheated by US Vice-President Joe Biden who promised to send US Defense Secretary Robert Gates to Russia before implementation of the United Nations Security Council Resolution 1973 which caused a large controversy in Russian political circles and was followed by the public exchange of opinions between Russian President Medvedev and Prime-Minister Putin.
