This is a matter of communicating current path from Vifm to system buffer via external command.

On *nix like operating systems using xclip

Commands to copy paths to current directory and currently selected file could look like this:

" yank current directory path into the clipboard
nnoremap yd :!echo -n %d | xclip %i<cr>

" yank current file path into the clipboard
nnoremap yf :!echo -n %c:p | xclip %i<cr>

" yank current filename without path into the clipboard
nnoremap yn :!echo -n %c | xclip %i<cr>

" yank root of current file's name into the clipboard
nnoremap yr :!echo -n %c:r | xclip %i<cr>

On *nix like operating systems using xsel

Commands to copy paths to current directory and currently selected file into both primary and selection clipboards could look like this:

" yank current directory path into the clipboard
nnoremap yd :!echo -n %d | xsel --input --primary %i && echo -n %d | xsel --clipboard --input %i<cr>

" yank current file path into the clipboard
nnoremap yf :!echo -n %c:p | xsel --input --primary %i && echo -n %c:p | xsel --clipboard --input %i<cr>

" yank current filename without path into the clipboard
nnoremap yn :!echo -n %c | xsel --input --primary %i && echo -n %c | xsel --clipboard --input %i<cr>

" yank root of current file's name into the clipboard
nnoremap yr :!echo -n %c:r | xsel --input --primary %i && echo -n %c:r | xsel --clipboard --input %i<cr>

On macOS using pbcopy

Commands to copy paths to current directory and currently selected file could look like this:

" yank current directory path into the clipboard
nnoremap yd :!echo -n %d | pbcopy %i<cr>

" yank current file path into the clipboard
nnoremap yf :!echo -n %c:p | pbcopy %i<cr>

" yank current filename without path into the clipboard
nnoremap yn :!echo -n %c | pbcopy %i<cr>

" yank root of current file's name into the clipboard
nnoremap yr :!echo -n %c:r | pbcopy %i<cr>

On Windows using clip

Similar commands, but those that operate on full paths have two versions for different types of slashes.

" yank current directory path to Windows clipboard with forward slashes
nnoremap yp :!echo %"d:gs!\!/! %i | clip<cr>

" yank current directory path to Windows clipboard with backward slashes
nnoremap yP :!echo %"d %i | clip<cr>

" yank path to current file to Windows clipboard with forward slashes
nnoremap yf :!echo %"c:gs!\!/! %i | clip<cr>

" yank path to current directory to Windows clipboard with backward slashes
nnoremap yF :!echo %"c %i | clip<cr>

" yank current filename without path to Windows clipboard
nnoremap yn :!echo %"c %i | clip<cr>

" yank root of current file's name to Windows clipboard
nnoremap yr :!echo -n %c:r | clip<cr>
