On 6 February 2016 Mohammadi signed a contract with Russian Premier League club Terek Grozny until 2019.[5][6] Milad made his debut for Terek Grozny as a substitute on 2 April 2016 in a 3–2 win over Anzhi Makhachkala.[7] In the 2016–17 Mohammadi became a starter for Terek at the Left Back position and recorded several assists.

Mohammadi scored his first goal for Terek and his first ever professional league goal on 29 April 2017 in a 5–2 victory against Ural Yekaterinburg. After the 2016–17 season, he was named as one of the top 50 U23 Asian talents to watch for.[8]

On 27 May 2019, Akhmat confirmed that Mohammadi left the club as a free agent upon the expiration of his contract.[9]
