The FMR spectra of electron-doped Sm0.2Ca0.8Mn1-xRuxO3 (0 ≤ x ≤ 0.08) system are measured and analyzed in the temperature interval 100 ≤ T ≤ 320 K, including all critical points of magnetic transitions. It is shown that the origin of macroscopic magnetization in the parent Sm0.2Ca0.8MnO3 and Ru-doped compounds is essentially different. The bound magnetic polarons formation at temperatures below the Neel point is suggested to be responsible for the appearance of a minute 'spontaneous' magnetic moment in Sm0.2Ca0.8MnO3. Doping with Ru induces formation of 'conventional' ferromagnetic phase in antiferromagnetic matrix. Such a phase is characterized by a Curie temperature, which is higher than the Neel temperature of the matrix. Magnetic phase diagrams of Sm0.2Ca0.8Mn1-xRuxO3 determined by ferromagnetic resonance and dc magnetic measurements are discussed.
