I'm not sure that Putin is necessarily wrong about the principle of territorial integrity. I think the dissolution of Yugoslavia, once a relatively well off country, was a sad process. Should the UN have intervened early on after Tito's death? Probably not. The UN is unfocused and incompetent and would probably have made things worse, but a US/Russia agreement to enforce a federalist solution there might have worked. Also we would have had to shoot the Serbian racist demagogues. Russia might not have like that, so I think we can blame the whole thing on Russia.

Shooting Serbians hasn't always worked out well.
