Watch live: Vladimir Putin's first UN General Assembly speech since 2005

Putin's speech is expected to focus on Syria, where Russia has just sent a small intervention force, and to criticize the US and other Western countries. Putin follows President Obama, whose speech this morning was harshly critical of Putin and Russian actions abroad.
