In addition to his five World Championships titles, Kashkarov won silvers at the World Championship in the 1987, 1989 and 1991 relays, and a bronze in the 10 km sprint event in 1989. Kashkarov also competed at two Olympics, winning a relay gold in 1984. His best individual result at the Olympic Games was fifth in the 20 km individual in 1988. In the World Cup, Kashkarov won six individual victories and finished a total of nine times on the podium individually. His best finish in the overall World Cup was second in the 1984–85 World Cup season. Domestically, Kashkarov won three Soviet titles – in 1986 in the 20 km and in 1987 in the 10 km and 25 km military patrol.
