We prove the existence of global-in-time weak solutions to a model describing the motion of several rigid bodies in a viscous compressible fluid. Unlike most recent results of similar type, there is no restriction on the existence time, regardless of possible collisions of two or more rigid bodies and/or a contact of the bodies with the boundary.
