If the pictures are accurate it doesn't look like its been down long. It want take an expert long to identify the sub all they need is a good picture of the periscope/snorkel assembly. It could be the USS Cochino (see the Wikipedia exert below)
USS Cochino (SS-345), a Balao-class submarine, was the only ship of the United States Navy to be named for the cochino, a triggerfish found in the Atlantic. Her keel was laid down by Electric Boat Company of Groton, Connecticut. She was launched on 20 April 1945 sponsored by Mrs. M.E. Serat, and commissioned on 25 August 1945 with Commander W.A. Stevenson in command.
Cochino joined the U.S Atlantic Fleet, cruising East Coast and Caribbean Sea waters from her home port of Key West, Florida. On 18 July 1949, she put to sea for a cruise to Britain, and arctic operations. Her group ran through a violent polar gale off Norway.

I wouldn't be surprised if this is another complex scam pulled by western powers to paint Russia as bad guy
All it takes is to buy or make a Swiss sub and repaint it and let reporters take a picture
Whatever Putin says, call him a liar.
The size IS a match. Wikipedia: Som-class submarines Sunk in a collision in 1916. It doesn't say where though.

The Baltic Sea is well known for preserving ships due to the extremly low oxygen levels. Some finds from WW1 is said to almost look new.
Security consultants say the submarine has not been crashed long, and speculate that it was part of an unsuccessful secret test or mission. “I imagine it has been tested and failed,” said security consultant Joakim von Braun.
