Hi,
I think it's the very same one with another painting.

Replicas!

Real "WWII survivors" in Soviet Union/Russia are rare as chicken teeth.  Maybe half a dozen planes survived out of about 150,000 planes made between 1941 and 1945...

No Il-2 survived, no LaGG-3 / La-5, no Yak-7 survived... the list is long.. and no Su-2 survived

Konstantin is correct; that "aeroplane" appears to be at Poklonnaya Hill, the site of Victory Park and the Museum of the Great Patriotic War, which is full of replicas (La-5, LaGG-3, single-seater Il-2, which however appears to be a two-seater restored to look like a single-seater, etc.).  What's amazing is how few aircraft were set aside.  Not a single Il-2, out of 36,163 produced, was set aside for preservation in the Soviet Union (The Poles, Czechs, Bulgarians, and Yugoslavians all set one aside).  Not a single one.  The Shturmoviks you see now in Russia are restored wrecks or replicas.  I'm not surprised that's not a real Su-2 as relatively few were produced.

Regards,
