Russian president says he does not seek Ukraine's destruction
Putin - "They cut the water supply to the Crimean Peninsula where 2.5 milllion people live. Troops had to move in and open the water supply. This is an example of our logic. If the first action hadn't occurred, there wouldn't have been a need for a counteraction. We'll have to think twice now, after the Crimean Bridge has been damaged, how important it is for Russia to ensure communication with Crimea by land."
