sorry to change the subject, but you all obviously know your stuff. if
anyone thinks the old gost key gen could possibly be more secure than
newer such as ripen ect i'd like to hear.

It is possible, but it is also possible that I will be struck by lightning 35 times in the next 5 minutes. It is extremely unlikely that GOST will be more secure than a modern design.

i know bestcrypt is closed source so this is all a matter of opinion,
but i respect all of your opinions on this subject.

Actually open versus closed source has nothing to do with security, it is a common misconception that it is otherwise.
