After the junior World Championships at Valkenburg, Kashechkin moved to Belgium, where he turned pro in 2001 with the Domo-Farm Frites team. In 2003, he moved to Quick Step-Davitamon, and the following year to French squad Crédit Agricole.
After two seasons in that team, Kashechkin joined Liberty Seguros-Würth, where he posted good results throughout the 2006 season.
Kashechkin was in 8th place in the overall classification after 15 stages of the 2007 Tour de France. However, his Tour was ended when his Astana team withdrew from the event after team leader Alexander Vinokourov tested positive for blood doping.
Following the 2007 Tour de France, Kashechkin has tested positive for blood doping. He was sacked from Astana after his B-sample also tested positive. He had plans to return to pro cycling in the middle of 2009, but was unable to find a team at that time. In June 2010, it was reported that Kashechkin was in negotiations with Lampre-Farnese Vini, and he later signed with them. In the middle of the 2011 season, however, Lampre released him and he re-signed with Astana in order to ride the Vuelta a España.
