During his professional career he played in four different countries, including in La Liga.
Born in Leningrad, Soviet Union, Radchenko started his professional career in his hometown, moving in 1991 to FC Spartak Moscow and helping the capital side to the first two editions of the Russian Premier League. In the 1990–91 edition of the European Cup he was essential in the quarter-final ousting of Real Madrid, notably scoring twice in the 3–1 away win.
For 1993–94, Radchenko signed with Racing Santander in Spain alongside teammate Dmitri Popov, and experienced arguably the best years in his career, notably scoring in a 5–0 home routing of FC Barcelona in his second season. A move to rising Deportivo de La Coruña followed, but he failed to establish in the starting XI, although heavily featured; the next three campaigns combined, he only netted once, with Rayo Vallecano, CP Mérida (both relegated from La Liga) and SD Compostela (Segunda División – where he shared teams again with Popov).
After relative success with Júbilo Iwata and HNK Hajduk Split, Radchenko finished his career in 2008 in the lower leagues of Spain (with some periods of inactivity in between). He played for Russia at the 1994 FIFA World Cup, where he scored a goal against Cameroon (6–1, with the remaining five courtesy of Oleg Salenko).
