A DejaNews search for "BestCrypt" turned up an announcement by
<a href="mailto:[email protected]">Sergey Frolov</a> in comp.security.misc
on November 14th. According to him, it implements GOST, single DES, and IDEA.
They have DOS and Windows versions. He says [big sic for this quote]:

	All algorithm available simultaneosly - you may change
	algorithm for your data easy - it's look like to change the password...

	I have non-commercial demo version of the product (370 Kb arjed 
	distributive) and I can send it to people who will be interested in it.
