Pavel "9pasha" (pronounced japɑːʃɑː) Khvastunov, commonly referred to as "Pasha", is a professional Russian Dota 2 player who is currently playing for Virtus.pro.


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 new Virtus.Pro squad, he decided to offer Pasha a position 3 in the new team.

Dota 2[edit]


  • His old nickname "9pashaebashu" (pronounced "yapasha-yebashu") contains a Russian argot word, meaning "I am wrecking" (but in a somewhat rude manner).[1]
  • 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. [2]
