Igor Anatolyevich Pashkevich (Russian: Игорь Анатольевич Пашкевич; born 1 July 1971) is a retired competitive figure skater. He is the 1990 World Junior champion for the Soviet Union and the 1996 European silver medalist for Russia. He competed at the 1994 Lillehammer Olympics for Russia and the 1998 Nagano Olympics for Azerbaijan.


Early in his career, Pashkevich competed for the Soviet Union and won gold at the 1990 World Junior Championships.[1] He represented Russia following the Soviet breakup. He was sent twice to the senior World Championships, placing as high as ninth (1994), and to the 1994 Winter Olympics, where he finished 15th. In 1995–96, his final season for Russia, he won gold at the 1995 Finlandia Trophy, silver at the 1995 NHK Trophy, and silver at the 1996 European Championships.

Pashkevich switched to Azerbaijan in the 1996–97 season. He placed seventh at the 1997 European Championships and eighth at the 1997 World Championships. The following season — his last — Pashkevich won the bronze medal at the 1997 Trophée Lalique and silver at the 1997 Nations Cup, qualifying for the Champions Series Final where he placed sixth. He withdrew from the 1998 European Championships but competed at the 1998 Winter Olympics in Nagano, Japan, and finished 16th. He retired at the end of the season.

Pashkevich coached Angela Nikodinov and was injured in the car accident that killed her mother.[2][3] He is an ISU Technical Specialist.[4]
