Reports of detachment seem pre-emptive/ bogus:

Russia Releases Strange, Vaguely Threatening Video Of The ISS Being Dismantled​


The video shows mocked-up footage of cosmonauts saying goodbyes to colleagues on the ISS, before climbing into the Russian section of the station. The Russian segment then detaches and watches the sunset, while jaunty music plays.

Tensions between Roscosmos and NASA have been rising in recent months, with Roscosmos head Dmitry Rogozin responding to US sanctions in February by tweeting "do you want to destroy our cooperation on the ISS?". The Twitter thread went on to threaten to drop the ISS on Earth.

"There is also the option of dropping a 500-ton structure to India and China. Do you want to threaten them with such a prospect?" Rogozin wrote. "The ISS does not fly over Russia, so all the risks are yours. Are you ready for them?"

The latest video, posted to Telegram, is unlikely to de-escalate any tensions or reassure NASA that cooperation on the ISS by the Russian space agency will continue. Last week, Roscosmos announced it was holding the OneWeb satellites to ransom, refusing to launch any of the constellations of low-orbit satellites until they received assurances that they wouldn't be used for military purposes and that the British government withdraws from the program. It also announced the end of any joint experiments on the ISS.
