‘Specifics’, please:

“Before Nauka docks, one of the older modules, the Pirs spacewalking compartment, will need to be ‘removed & scrapped’…” -

The launch of Nauka, also called the Multipurpose Laboratory Module, had been repeatedly delayed because of technical problems. It was initially scheduled to go up in 2007.

Holy crap, that's a long time ago!

The ISS is already nearing its expiration date by the time the package arrived, lol
