And...Russia cannot move their own modules from ISS to another station due to the inclination differences planned. The hullabaloo over Russia threatening to pull their modules to create their own station turns out to be little more than noise it seems. You have to wonder why Nauka was launched then. After all, Russia could have saved it for the new station.

Not sure they could even if they wanted to. Another of the modules in the Russian segment is showing stress fractures. Meaning that the lifespans in that segment which is critical to the ISS as a whole is nearing end of life.

The cracks were found in the Zarya module.

The mothballed Interim Control Module could act as a replacement for Zarya if needs be.

That said, other segments of the ISS may have cracks as well as Zarya, on either the Russian or American/International sides.

Reboost isn’t the issue it’s the power and life support. Dragon crew and the Japanese resupply are both able to reboost. They have found stress fractures now in both Zarqa and Zvezda the latter contains the service module with critical infrastructure.
