i have to agree with azathoth on this one. it certainly seems like he gave up his initial "let's bring SEELE down from the inside" agenda by the time 2015 rolled around.
But throughout the series (year 2015) he doesn't hide his disgust of impacting the human race, and of lifeless Antarctica and of all that. He would descend to an apathetic state before playing along with THAT.
Gendo probably backs him up on this, he only starts Nerv's Instrumentality project AFTER Yui disappears. On the shaky grounds they were (meddling with the designs of some godlike nigh incomprehensible beings and basing their decision on limited information and the impossibility of directly rising against SEELE) their best option was to play along and try to hijack third impact. It may be that 3I was unstoppable, but I'm not sure to what degree the reversal to LCL of everybody was avoidable or not. Rei fucks it all up in EoE when she goes solo and entrusts instrumentality on Shinji's worst mental state ever.
Yes, I can't deny that. I will contend that Yui may have been the one Fuyutsuki most cared about, but he wasn't in love.
