In 2003, after falling out with Oleg Romantsev, Kechinov spent almost entire season on the bench and at the end of the season signed a deal with Saturn Ramenskoe. Kechinov wasn't the only player to have problems with the Spartak management at that time, earlier other star players such as Ilia Tsymbalar, Andrey Tikhonov and Evgeni Bushmanov were forced to leave the team for similar reasons.

After a brief spell at Saturn, Kechinov moved to Shinnik, where he spent the next three years of his career, until retiring in 2004.
