Three points to consider.
a) He has denied Ukraine's right to exist which doesn't match your suggestion. Definitely a quick strike on Kiyv as occurred at the start of the war doesn't either.
b) His definition of Russian is often anyone who can speak Russia which because it was pretty much mandatory across much of the USSR includes the majority of Ukrainians. That they don't want to either 'be' Russian or be ruled by a murderous idiot doesn't matter to him.
c) He has repeatedly said that the greatest disaster of the latter 20thC was the collapse of the USSR. Go figure.
