Fioletov was born into a poor peasant family in Borisoglebsk, a town in nowadays Voronezh Oblast, Russia. In 1890 his family moved to Baku where he worked as a metalworker. He became a member of Russian Social Democratic Labour Party in 1900 and during the Russian Revolution of 1905 he was one of the trade union activists of oil-industry workers in Groznyy and Baku. Fioletov became one of the 26 Baku Commissars of the Soviet Commune that was established in the city after the October Revolution. When the Commune was toppled by the Centro Caspian Dictatorship, a British-backed coalition of Dashnaks, SRs and Mensheviks, Fioletov and his comrades were captured and executed by firing squad between the stations of Pereval and Akhcha-Kuyma of Transcaucasian Railroad.
