Russians scraped their space shuttle equivalent after one flight because they had no use for it (instead of using it, to the cost of untold number of billions $ like the US did). Russians are pragmatic, why would they launch a space station while the ISS is still in orbit?
Besides, they've done it before, remember Mir ?
