The two men were found injured by officers on the mall floor.

One of them died at the scene of the accident, the other succumbed to his injuries in hospital.

Police have arrested a 57-year-old Russian man on suspicion of murder, German news agency DPA reported.

He was found and arrested at his home address not far from the crime scene.

The victims are believed to be aged 23 and 36 but, like the murderer, have yet to be named in line with German data protection regulations.

It remains unclear whether the three men knew each other.

According to the Ukrainian government, the two soldiers were on vacation at the time of their murder.

The Foreign Ministry in Kiev said they were in Germany for medical rehabilitation and lived in the southern German district of Garmisch-Partenkirchen.

The ministry said Ukrainian consuls are currently clarifying information about the units in which the deceased soldiers served.

The investigation into the “background and motives” of the murders is ongoing.

More than a million Ukrainian refugees came to Germany after Russia launched a large-scale invasion of Ukraine in 2022.

Germany has been an important partner in Ukraine’s fight against Russia, providing billions of euros in military aid to Kiev since 2022 and training more than 10,000 soldiers.

According to the Health Ministry in Berlin, more than 1,000 wounded Ukrainians were treated in Germany, including almost 700 soldiers.

Earlier this month, two suspected spies suspected of attempting to sabotage military aid destined for Ukraine were arrested in the Bavarian city of Bayreuth.

According to officials, the men, who were only identified as Dieter S. and Alexander J., are German-Russian dual nationals.

Prosecutors said Dieter S. had been discussing possible acts of sabotage in Germany since October with a person linked to Russian intelligence.

He was also accused of agreeing to carry out bomb and arson attacks on military infrastructure.

Alexander J is said to have helped him gather intelligence on potential targets, including US military sites, last month.
