Couple of days ago I watched a Turkish TV show which says something completely new to me regarding the historic Ankara war between the Ottomans and Timurid Empire in 1402. According to the show the well known Italian family Medicis' helped and supported Timur both financially and militarily to destroy the Ottomans and to destabilize the region. 

I can't find any other sources supporting this claim. Have you ever heard something about this issue? Wikipedia says "European nations had, at first, encouraged the Timurid invasion.  Genoese were said to be flying the Mongol standard from the walls of Galata in support of Timur." But no further details are given.

And I as central asian can say that you turks did behaved so lowly when you unified with christians and arabs and crushed our turko-iranian army in yassichemen battle, by this you helped to mongols to conquer all  region completely. So I’m glad that central asian Timur has smashed Turkiye, that was revenge. There is famous word of Timur –“ I will restore to life the turkic dominancy and chase mongolians back to their place from where they appeared

Cool. Though we don't have to take a side, do we? Both the Ottomans and Timurids Empire were damned middle aged states back then and I don't feel any sympathy towards them. So as a Turk I don't really care if you are really glad that Timur had smashed the Ottoman state. I, as a curious amateur historian who lives in a civilized modern world, would like to know more about what happened exactly in 1402. That's all.

I have not heard this but it wouldn't surprise me. The Italians were dealing with and supporting the Mongols in the 1250s as well.

For u info, Timur waged war against mongols, for example  the total massacre in caucase that Timur perpetrated was aimed only to those who supported mongols (Golden Horde) he even didn’t spared turkic population such as Kumuks, Karachay- Circassians, alanic nations, however only Chechenistan he left untouched because they were only who opposed mongols – Golden Horde, the rest all caucase supported mongols and Timur attacked them accordingly.

when Timurids won Ottomans in battle of Ankara, the Rome pope decreed to ring the church bells in all europe, celebrate this infamous battle.

Since from times of Chingis-han europe as a jackal tried to establish ties with mongols , to benefit from them and they succeeded. Their main aim was to subjugate russians and turks, they superseded Peter-I with pro-european Peter and cut the ties between russians folk and russian ruling elite. The mercenary politic of  judeo-rome alliance in subjugating eurasia was successfully accomplished.
