The prime directive has to do with not getting involved in the natural evolution of a species.

Like LT. Tom Paris did on Voyager Episode 30 Days.

Or like the Horizon did to the society on the planet Sigma Iota II.
Kirk, Spock and Mccoy had to fix the damage which was done by the Federation in the first place.
There's a difference in fixing a major problem and causing harm which the Prime Directive is supposed to stop.

In the instance of Kirk and Co, the prime directive had already been broken. They were duty bound to fix the damage.
