Yup. Taking the rest of Ukraine would just result in more useless land and a having to deal with a population that would be hostile to Moscow.
More administration, more trouble, little-to-no gain economically or politically.

The Crimean Peninsula, on the other hand, is the only part of Ukraine that has any useful purpose to Russia in this game of chess.
It was also convenient that ethnic Russians outnumber ethnic Ukrainians in that region.
