Pavel "9pasha" Khvastunov (born June 30, 1992) is a Russian Dota 2 player who last played for Pari Parni.

His player name is pronounced japɑːʃɑː but is commonly referred to as "Pasha".


Dota 2[edit]

Pasha has been playing most of his career in the Offlane position, however, he had a long tenure of playing the Carry role, which started when Mag~, a renowned offlane player, joined Vega Squadron in Spring of 2015. Pasha kept playing the number 1 position through all his time with Vega, and later kept this role in Polarity. However, when he joined Fantastic Five in their efforts to make it through The International 2016 qualifiers, Pasha switched back to offlane.

When Solo was tasked with drafting the new Virtus.Pro squad after TI6, he decided to pickup Pasha as the team's new offlaner. With, he was able to win eight LAN tournaments, five of which were Valve Majors, and played over 600 matches. However, his results at The International have been disappointing, with two 5-6th-place finishes and one 9-12th-place finish. After over three years with, 9Pasha was removed from the team in September 2019,[1] following The International 2019. For the coming season, he will be playing for Natus Vincere.


  • His old nickname "9pashaebashu" (pronounced "yapasha-yebashu") contains a Russian argot word, meaning "I am wrecking" (but in a somewhat rude manner).[2]
  • Pasha's Twitter and Twitch accounts use a picture of Phoenix as an avatar - Pasha is an avid Phoenix player and used to play it a lot on the Offlane position in the beginning of his career.
  • When asked in an interview before The International 2015 Wildcard qualifiers how he would like to spend his hypothetical winnings, Pasha said that he would like to buy his own PC, since the one he had at home was broken and he was forced to play most of his games from an Internet Cafe. Unfortunately for him, he made no money from his Seattle trip, but later finally bought a new PC with his share of ESL One New York 2015 prize.
  • Pasha was the person who "walked fans through" Vega's new gaming house in February 2016. He was kicked from the team shortly after.
  • He is married.[3]
