    Yes, Zarya and Zvezda both have thrusters, but I think they use the 
    Progress vehicle's thrusters first, since it's disposable. But the Zvezda 
    thrusters are the main ones they use now, I believe...they get topped up 
    from the Progress before it leaves.
    Don't know about the minimum distance, but it's probably measured in km or 
    tens of km.
