Yashchenko was noticed by coach Boris Kopeikin during his military service and recommended to CSKA Moscow where he spent the 1981 season in the shadow of Aleksandr Tarkhanov, playing only a couple of matches. He then went back to his native Ukraine and to Shakhtar, winning the 1983 Soviet Cup and the 1984 Soviet Super Cup. He played a total of 14 seasons with Shakhtar and won, after the collapse of the USSR, the 1995 Ukrainian Cup.
He became head coach of Ukrainian side FC Metalurh Zaporizhzhya in 2006 and guided them to the first round of the UEFA Cup and a 2-1 aggregate defeat to Panathinaikos FC. He left Zaporizhzhya in April 2007 and took up a position as reserve team coach at FC Metalurh Donetsk. Following the resignation of Jos Daerden as Metalurh head coach in early December 2007, Yashchenko assumed caretaker manager duties at the club before becoming the permanent manager two weeks later.
