The conditions of existence of stable formations of charged particles (clusters) moving in a plasma-like medium are discussed in this paper. The interaction of clusters is considered in the framework of a one-dimensional model. It is shown that the stability of a cluster depends strongly on the number of particles that form part of it. When two clusters moving with respect to each other interact, they break up if the relative velocity is fairly low. Fast-moving clusters hardly interact with each other.
