Mila is currently ranked third in international Ladies' Singles, above Sara Crispino.
It was revealed that Mila was dating an ice hockey player before the start of the series, but they broke up some time before episode 4.
Mila is a fairly tall young woman with short, wavy auburn hair and deep blue eyes. She often wears pink lip gloss. Despite her petite frame, Mila is capable of lifting Yuri above her head.
Mila is fun to be around, and has quite a sense of humor. She likes to tease Yuri, and also makes fun of Georgi while watching his short program program. Mila is also a caring person, paying attention to the well-being of her rinkmates. However, she is apparently a force to be reckoned with when provoked, as Yuri mentions that she beat up her ex-boyfriend when she discovered that he was cheating on her.
Mila and Yuri seem to have a casual but close relationship. She treats him as one would a younger brother, teasing him constantly but also offering support when needed. Yuri often refers to Mila as an "annoying grandma". Despite often being annoyed by Mila, Yuri is quite trusting of her and is willing to follow her guidance.
Mila and Georgi are rinkmates under Yakov's supervision. They sit together in the audience at the Rostelecom Cup. She knows quite a lot about Georgi's personal life, specifically his breaking up with his ex-girlfriend Anya, and makes jokes about his short program during the China Cup.
Yakov is Mila's coach, and she travels with him along with the Russian team. Under Yakov's guidance, Mila was able to enter the Grand Prix Women's Final, along with Sara.
Although Sara is a rival, Mila and Sara are seen to be on good terms. They sit together in the audience at the Rostelecom Cup men's free skate, and she is concerned for Sara when the latter starts crying during Michele's performance. Both of them manage to proceed to the GPF ladies' program, and they sit together at the rinkside.
- Yuri's nickname for Mila, which is баба (baba), meaning 'old lady' or 'grandmother' in both Japanese and Russian, might be a play on Mila's surname, Babicheva.
- Mila is seen during the Sochi GPF banquet taking pictures of Yuuri pole dancing.
