MOSCOW (AP) — President Vladimir Putin says that Crimea should be part of Russia.

At the same time, he said in a televised address to the nation Tuesday that Russia doesn't want to move to other regions of Ukraine, saying that "we don't want division of Ukraine."

Putin said that Russia had to respond to what he described as a Western plot to take Ukraine into its sphere of influence. He said that protests that drove out Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych were encouraged by the West.
