mystery submarine

While driving around the back streets of St. Petersburg one day in the spring of '94 I came across this monument. There was no signage to indicate any history other than the pennant number D2. She appears to be of pre-WWII vintage and must have been one of the first Soviet built submarines. Does anyone know her history?
