Abstract: We generalize the Banach-Tarski paradox showing that this theorem holds in the metric spaces in which bounded and closed sets are compact, relative to continuous and transitive actions of non-solvable Lie groups whose non-identity elements has small sets of fixed points (i.e., the points are irrelevant in the considered constructions).
