Seems that volume encrypted with GostCrypt can not be converted:

Encryption Algorithm Gost 28147-89

PKCS-5 PRF HMAC-GOST 34.11-2012

Will this be possible, ever?

Currently, VeraCrypt doesn't implement GOST algorithms so it is not possible to convert GostCrypt volumes now.

That being said, it is planned to include new algorithms in VeraCrypt in order to provide more choices and alternatives to Western only algorithms. This will include supporting the ciphers Camellia (Japan) and Gost (Russia) and the hash Streebog (GOST R 34.11-2012).

So, when it will be implemented, converting from GostCrypt will be possible.

Any idea regarding timescale?
